Tolstoy had fourteen happy days
During his entire earth-pilgrimage.
I still have not counted
My happy days on earth.
But I am so proud
To tell the world
That man, angel and God
Have kindly done the job for me.
Man’s conclusion: fourteen seconds.
Angel’s assumption: fourteen years.
God’s revelation: fourteen aeons.
