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
