Such Things by F.C. Shultz Whatever is like a timely sunrise; meditate here. Whatever is like a spring doe; linger long here. Whatever is like a shared tricycle; turn these over often. Whatever is like a swaddled firstborn; consider these. Whatever is like a steaming cobbler; marvel here. Whatever is like a crayoned scribble; ponder here. If there be any open-armed apology; dwell here. If there be any open-handed surrender; dwell here.
