With brilliant mind and steady pen,
I would bequeath what I could give
To inspire those who otherwise
Would barren die and fruitless live.

But I have not the brilliant mind
Of sages who have lived before.
Their thoughts and mine did not entwine,
Nor wisdom knock upon my door.

The words of poets I must ponder
'Til meanings of their verse I see,
But understanding comes with wonder--
Relation to reality.

So I have not but this crude verse
To share with those I would impel
Bestow upon mankind their skills
While on this earth they briefly dwell.
