There are so many things

one's head cannot hold.

So much of the new

one cannot grasp.

But the children and their children

will, no doubt,

conform to the wishes

of those who decide

these things.

I often sit up on the hill

and look down on this dear land

and our beloved homes.

I see my children

and their children

and feel ashamed

because I cannot quite understand

how all this can be good.
