Cowley's Maxim

"I doubt all things in order to prove all things"...

Faith prompts action
farmers stomp
and reap
to sow salvation

How queer the skeptic
in me
to disprove
the faith eclectic

I have no spirit
I have nothing to prove

I have no intellect
I have nothing to learn

I have no love
I have nothing to hold

or so I think
but I could be wrong

I like this. It has some food for thought. I especially like the first stanza and the first line.
Always great to see old folks posting again.
Thanks for sharing.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words ........Robert Frost☺

There is much to come. I guarantee it.

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley
