"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 heartnor need,
That I can see. The mindis 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)
