A thought

Do you think man realizes what he's lost?
or gets wisdom from words, by Keats and Frost

If you teach, of only understanding their read
Do you instill, the inability, to implement a deed

If known that a path, leads you toward demise
Why speak of aesthetic beauty in a sunrise?

Emotion finds thoughts, thoughts find words
A poet's words tell us how to navigate like birds

Avoid clouds of strife, let wisdom into your life
Man's hatred, arrogance will fade, hearing his fife

knowledge is the lesson, not just to understand 
From words seek wisdom, your world will expand

    Yes indeed Tom.. Yes indeed..! why do some grasp so hard at understanding?? and then run for cover when they see rain..? ever wishing to be immersed in the ocean, they dig channels to divert water so to speak; but you know the feel of real Tom..just as I so why the words, only for while we are on earth I suppose, till next time Joe..)
