A Thought--By Eleanor Michael--United States

A Thought

Not meant for man:
   The pipes of Pan,
      The pool of Narcissus,
         The home of the tree sprite,
             The dark of the moonless night,
                The mountains of the moon.

Eleanor Michael has published poetry and short stories in a variety of venues.


  1. Your thought Eleanor, gave rise to more thoughts about what is not for man. I remembered this quote by Horatius Bonar, "Tis not for man to trifle, time is short and sin is here." Thank you for this thought provoking poem that caused me to reflect upon my life and times.
    Love, Charfene.

  2. Your words gives one something to think upon - Interesting poetry, giving me thought...
