The Perennial Wisdom

The world that never was

But always is

Is ever present to the seeking and discerning mind

And on the desiccating winds

And in the thin air above

The highest peaks

Beyond the barren facts

Of history

Lies the light of revealed truth

Beyond the bones and dust and stones

Of time's empty temples

And ruined cities

The highest principles

The eternal virtues

Are the monolith

Against which to measure -- truly

This world of mediocrity

This world of disappointments

And of woe

Against men

Against their money, their achievements, their foibles

Stands truth eternal

The perennial wisdom unrealized

But always waiting

For any who sincerely seek it

For any lonely soul who dares
