LOOKS, by            
First Line: What knowledge do my ears provide
Last Line: Stirs to her treachery.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Books; Eyes; Knowledge; Learning; Sight; Reading


What knowledge do my Ears provide,
What do I learn from books?
I trust my Eyes for what I think,
And feed on silent looks.

The things I hear with my two Ears
Still cry aloud for proof;
But what I see with my two Eyes
Must be the very truth.

The woman that's behind my back,
To hide her looks from me—
Knows not the face of him I watch
Stirs to her treachery.
