DPF / Pinsky

For Horace and Brutus and Sunday-night thoughts of posterity, from An Explanation of America. 

from Part Two: Its Great Emptiness, IV. Filling the Blank / by Robert Pinsky

While for our children we are bound to aspire
Differently: something like a nest or farm;
So that the cycle of different aspirations
Threads through posterity
