Reflexivity

it is addressed thusly:
A thought.
it reads:
In walking he came upon the strangest sight
Words there written as garish as they were bright:

"A total commitment is all we're asking for
Anything less, we know you don't really care
While you slack we may lose a thousand or more
Act now, there isn't another moment to spare!"

"If then these are counted virtues" replied the Sage,
"Then let me be the greatest fool of this age!"

Shut up

it is addressed thusly:
A thought.
it reads:
To be one shut up who can not come forth
As David cried, to that silence that absorbs
All inspiration, but maybe the dry quiet speaks
Without saying, and perhaps one of those Greeks
Said that silence is sound ending only to man
But not to God, to God! Who was before sound began.

The Hurricanes

it reads:
The passing giants
Whose shadows cast a dark cloud
Left us with buckets.

(or)

To walk on water is a marvelous feat
And these giant ones passed o'er it walking
Their shadows did a silent cloud create
But we with buckets gather water, talking.
