To know less once more is known

and this by learn’ed man’s lament,

to feel no more… no less than he

once put mind to task as sent,

the paradox to find… the vastness

of the great beyond the known…

ever to be behind the hand of God’s

ability… a sorrow learned and shown.

 

Alas,Ihavestudiedphilosophy,

thelawaswellasmedicine,

andtomysorrow,theology;

studiedthemwellwithardentzeal,

yethereIam,awretchedfool,

nowiserthanIwasbefore.
