HE KNOWS NO CHANGE WHO KNOWS THE TRUE, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: Forever lives the knowledge of the wise
Subject(s): Wisdom; Change


He knows no change who knows the true,
And on it keeps his eye,
Who always still the unseen doth view;
Only the false & the apparent die.

Things change, but change not far
From what they are not but to what they are,
Or rather 'tis our ignorance that dies;
Forever lives the knowledge of the wise.
