By Gayle K. Hobbs
There they sat waiting.
impressive thoughts flung through the air
so they could be grasped and absorbed.
Thoughts came and floated
endlessly among the laughter
anxious and ignored.
Some seized at passing
concepts, while they floated
slightly hackneyed and worn.
Precious few partook of
the knowledge and experienced
a new abundance being born.
This event was a daily endeavor
practiced in the halls and caverns
of our princely schools,
While those at home
saw not the visions and
impatiently aborted these tools.
Yet, thoughts survived,
and spontaneously thrived,
Waiting for extraordinary minds
as they bloomed fresh, anxious,
