The Arc of History

Phoebus in his coat and tie

Caught the barista’s wandering eye,
And all was won, and love was done,
And love produced an errant son,
And all the world was hot and dry.

A shepherd in a foundered field
Found him a maid and made her yield.
A golden age, by golden rule,
Began its rain, and it was cool,
Its prior mystery concealed.

They called it fable, called it lore,
The days of rain, the age of ore.
And all of those who came behind
Said it had been by love designed,
And they were what had been in store.
