A Few Hours Ago: Max Ehrmann

A few hours ago, hot and
tired, I was surrounded by the
jargon of business, myself
a part of it.
Now, near the middle of the
night, I am sitting by
an open window.
Everything is still and the soft
night air is cool.
The sky seems very near, and
the stars lie over the heavens
stretching on and on.
The moon is passing in and out
of the clouds, making a
shadow-chequered day of the
night, and breaking the sky
with shafts of gold.
All silent, the universe is doing
its work - beautiful,
mysterious, religious!
What was all the jargon about,
a few hours ago?
