Poetry and Miscellany

  • Poem

    Men say they know many things;
    But lo! they have taken wings—
    The arts and sciences,
    And a thousand appliances;
    The wind that blows
    Is all that any body knows.

    ~ Henry David Thoreau

Nic is right: every poet should read this. Heck every person should read it. We all need the reminder from time to time.

Poem: Death Of The Poet, by Billy Jones
