THE BOOKWORM AND THE MOTH
I hear that in my library one night
A bookworm spoke thus to a moth:
"I have long lodged in Sinas14 tomes
And have consumed much of Farabis15 manuscript.
But I have not learned anything
About lifes mystery,
And am just as much in the dark
About it as before."
The half-burnt moth gave it a fine reply
"You will not find lifes mystery
Explained in books.
However, here it is:
What gives to life intensity
It lends life wings
With which to fly."
