UNDERSTANDING, by            
First Line: How blind men are! We surely cannot know
Last Line: May it be with understanding that we live!


How blind men are! We surely cannot know
And judge the way men go!
Perhaps the grind of hectic years
Has won at last.

How sharp -- how cruel can human judgments be!
The inmost heart of men we cannot see.
Thus has it been since time began;
Lay down the bruising stones we cast.

Of all the virtues which heaven has to give --
May it be with understanding that we live!
