Summer -- Mary Oliver

Guest poem sent in by Arunasri Nishtala
(Poem #1678) Summer
 Leaving the house,
 I went out to see

 The frog, for example,
 in her satiny skin;

 and her eggs
 like a slippery veil;

 and her eyes
 with their golden rims;

 and the pond
 with its risen lilies;

 and its warmed shores
 dotted with pink flowers;

 and the long, windless afternoons;
 and the white heron

 like a dropped cloud,
 taking one slow step

 then standing awhile then taking
 another, writing

 her own soft-footed poem
 through the still waters.
-- Mary Oliver
This poem says it all. Delightfully vivid and the last lines dive deep,
where poetry is a hobby of frogs...

I guess it is our attempt in understanding and appreciating art, poetry
and nature that that can lift us human beings up to the high standards
of the other members of nature: the plant kingdom and the animal kingdom.

Definitely a valid point. As José pointed out, the main win here would be the memory size. I just did a simple test of adding 100,000 integers to a set and the size was just over 4mb which isn't too bad. You'll definitely run out of memory much quicker by storing large groups of data in a set. Bloom Filters really strike a good balance between memory size and lookup speed.
