A Poem Called Knowledge That Stands In Calm Opposition To The Tone Of Our Society

Here is a poem I like called Knowledge by Louise Bogan. ( 1897-1970) I think this poem helps show how to live a life useful to others and manageable for one’s self. —-

Now that I know

How passion warms little

Of flesh in the mould,

And treasure is brittle,-

I’ll lie here and learn

How, over their ground

Trees make a long shadow

And a light sound.
