The sun was scattered through the colored glass The floor was stained as light enveloped in a bath And shadows on the wall from piles of books were cast With rows that formed an aisle in through which I passed These the quarters of a recluse whom I’d come to ask About the origin of wisdom he was said to have To get the story of “the man who knows more than any”, or so I read He welcomed me to sit with affection and then he said: “Since I was seven I’ve traveled the globe through words Set on a mission to devour all I could learn I’ve studied the writings of the greatest minds you’ve heard Discovered the tenets that the finest thinkers observed The more I gained, the more that I sought to earn The more I attained, the hotter the fire burned With every book I finished another was there to serve For every text I read there were pages still left to turn I’ve learned from all the migrants and drifters to whom I’d listen Philosophers and soldiers whose knowledge I would solicit I know histories of nations I’ll never have chance to visit Complexities of science and language with great precision But in the end I’ve seen nothing of what’s been given This life that I’ve employed, while I love it, it has its limits The failing I regret, though it’s painful, I must admit it For everything I know of this world, I never lived it” A silence hung for a moment’s thought As echoes from the room decayed
