Someone's tag

This was a colleague's tag-line.

Are not the trees gree,
The earth as green?
Does not the wind blow,
Fire leap and the rivers flow?
..Man, too hurries,
Eats, couples, buries,
He is an animal also
...Man aspires
To good
To love
Sighs
Beaten, corrupted, dying
To his own blood lying
Yet heaves an eye above
Cries, Love, Love.
It is his viryue that needs explaining
Not his failing
Away, melancholy
Away with it, let it go.

- Stevie Smith
