Emily's Rule

by Robert Lloyd Jaffe

There is nothing more burning
then the thought of new travel.
Like a clew so long
one can't foresee its unravel.

Oh, but an empty purse
does cool,
and we must fall back
to Emily's Rule:
a book is a frugal way
to enjoy the world's rabble.

Robert Lloyd Jaffe's picture

I am an observer and listener of the music of life. Where I find cadence, I find my interest and passion directed. It can be sound, light, smell, or purely an experience of thought. The sky, the sea, the mountains, and the machines that allow me to explore those places draw my attention, and give me serenity.
