Onwards and Forwards


Onwards and Forwards

A Poem




Up and down

and up and down

It goes all round


Comes and goes

Through joy and woes

Its spinning never stops


On Earth so far the sky above

The rift just flown over by doves

Like the cycle of the crops


The sphere is never altered

The life has never faltered

And there it shall go on


To pain, to maim

With love, to aim

True life is never squandered


Safe those who laugh

That cow is yet not calf

And life cannot be made


We around together go

Always up and down and so

The wheel, unbroken, never shows
