The Calf Path :: The reason I never delete..

Anything until opened with at least a quick glance for fear precious email gems would be missed..

The following snippet is from the poem, The Calf Path by S.W. Foss.. A member of the W3C's www-html listserv just featured a different snippet from the same poem to illustrate what came across as her point that just because a cow path has been worn as is forever is no reason to give in to popular demand and grandfather something in, especially when that something goes against the stated mission of an entity's purpose..

The Calf Path..

And from that day, o'er hill and glade.
Through those old woods a path was made.

And many men wound in and out,
And dodged, and turned, and bent about;

And uttered words of righteous wrath,
Because 'twas such a crooked path.

But still they followed - do not laugh -
The first migrations of that calf.
