YOU DON'T BELIEVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You don't believe I won't attempt to make ye
Last Line: Try ,try & never mind the reason why
Subject(s): Bible; Mythology; Sleep

You don't believe I wont attempt to make ye
You are asleep I wont attempt to wake ye
Sleep on Sleep on while in your pleasant dreams
Of Reason you may drink of Lifes clear streams
Reason and Newton they are quite two things
For so the Swallow & the Sparrow sings
Reason says Miracle. Newton says Doubt
Aye thats the way to make all Nature out
Doubt Doubt & dont believe without experiment
That is the very thing that Jesus meant
When he said Only Believe Believe & try
Try ,Try & never mind the Reason why
