Eternity — by Les Murray

Cliffs think eternity
Is stone
Sheep fear, resignedly
It's bone.

Blood knows eternity
Is perfect, red
Lions bear it to the kill
Within their tread

The snake knows it is coiled
Because he knows—
I am less wise than he
I just suppose

Saints take eternity
For guide,
And earth approaches it
As bride.

My first thought - terrific idea.

Next thought - uh-oh. Front loaders. No can do.

Nice idea, though.
