The thinker

A Long time ago, Far far away,
he sat under the sky and thought all day
about what we are and what life means
and the meaning of reason, heavens and dreams

After years of thought, he wrote them down to make them last
and then like everyone else on an ordinary day his mortal life was a thing of the past
Yet he lives on today and for eternity
in his poetry and his philosophy
