Numbers

Numbers are funny things
having meaning to humans alone.
No animal or plant counting out
One, Two, Three.
See you at Four, Five, Six.
Give me Seven, Eight, Nine.
I need more,
Less,
Count me back the change.

We attach different meanings to numbers.
Like saying it took a whole one year,
Three Hundred and sixty five days,
Twenty Four Hours,
I ate One whole pie.

Can you see
Twenty Four Hours
as One Revolution of the Earth,
and One Year as one trip around the Sun?

We go quite far each day
While feeling like we are standing still.
The numbers help guide us
We follow them,
Follow them we will.
