Peripatetic

Peripatetic

A Poem by Aurora

The chevalier chugged his ale
As he rode his horse down the vale
A Knight, indefatigable to the last
Ne'er vanquished until the last
Returns he to none, but hailed by all,
Until his cinders come undone by his pall.

The peripatetic life
One soldier's strife.

I am not very well versed in the philosophy of Aristotle but one of his tenants regarding motion is one that I have equated in waves and write of now. it seems that he was a man before his time if he only knew then what we have proven to be true today god knows the things he would find today. If I am catching the drift of your draft I would have to say the meaning I glean from these lines is the choice one makes in the contemplative life is analogous to the life of the itinerant soldier. It can be as lonely and hard but the rewards of accolades are heralded eternal fruit. That is what the bunny sees:)
