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..)
