This one is for Plato: 

         by  Zbigniew Herbert

The pebble
is a perfect creature 

equal to itself 
mindful of its limits 

filled exactly 
with a pebbly meaning 

with a scent that does not remind one of anything 
does not frighten anything away does not arouse desire 

its ardour and coldness 
are just and full of dignity 

I feel a heavy remorse 
when I hold it in my hand 
and its noble body 
is permeated by false warmth 

--Pebbles cannot be tamed 
to the end they will look at us 
with a calm and very clear eye
