'Round the axle, on the Wheel
Daring not to see or feel
Caring not to spout pentameter
Closed upon such small diameter!
Roundly lost, if you were found,
Raised above your dismal ground
Lifted from the dank miasma
Into hopeful, light-filled plasma
From the darkling, fetid ground
To a view for miles around,
Oh, the joy and heart's expansion
Floods of insight, all in scansion!
Freedom from that axle binding,
Greater heights you would be minding,
Broader views, and lights unending,
Brighter minds and hearts befriending!
But, before the sun went down,
Something sad would there be found;
Far above the darkling ground,
Still, it all goes round and round.
There the light-enboldened facts will
Tie you to the larger axle!
On the larger, endless Wheel,
Larger senses also reel.
