Elling’s Book – A Poem by Harold Strauss


Submitted by Harold Strauss

We’ve one foot in the present
And another in the ancestral past.

That’s how Dr. Elling signed off,
Uncertain if it really made his point,
But happy with its eloquent ring.

Sometimes our tone is more triumphant
Than our ideas, he decided. But that’s alright.
Sometimes that’s just what we need

Painting: Edward Hopper – Compartment Car
