"I Had Not Taken the First Step in Knowledge"

Random Poetry List LXX

I had not taken the first step in knowledge;
I had not learned to let go with the hands,
As still I have not learned to with the heart,
And have no wish to with the heart—nor need,
That I can see. The mind—is not the heart.
I may yet live, as I know others live,
To wish in vain to let go with the mind—
Of cares, at night, to sleep; but nothing tells me
That I need to let go with the heart.

Robert Frost (AD 1874-1963)
