Freedom's Walk


'Who sees with equal eye, as God of all,
A hero perish, or a sparrow fall....

"Atoms or systems...


"into ruin hurled,


"And now a bubble burst,


and now a world."

Those are fantastic, both beautiful and humbling. And the poem adds some deep reverberation. Thanks, Gerard.

No, alas. It's from Pope's Essay on Man.
