I wonder if ’twere better to be blind?
For we see beauty ne’er to be touched,
And human souls ne’er to be reached.
Why?….Oh why, is existence so unkind?
To grant us sight of what will not be.
To pull back what dangles before us;
As we reach with all of our might.
I wonder if ’twere better not to see,
That which is beyond our reach?
