  • The Scientist

    One day, when wand’ring in a lonely wood,
    I chanced to see a spark—a light ahead
    So quick was there; quick gone again from me
    Now I was left to ponder what I’d seen

    Of all the things I’d seen in all my years
    Not even once had I beheld such light
    It firmly held a place inside my mind
    And I, at once, set off to search it out

    As I began, I noticed something strange:
    The world stood still, and silence filled the air
    It seemed I’d entered into some new world,
    Where I alone could strive to seek and learn

    I hastened now to where I’d seen the light
    And lo! All it had touched still dimly shone!
    I stood there struck by awe and wonderment
    And failed to note what strange thing had begun

    Around me many more lights had appeared,
    Which danced and spun and raced around my head
    Surprised, I smiled and laughed delightedly
    And in my eyes they saw familiar light

    They took me by the hand and drew me up
    And as I rose the lights began to swell
    ‘Til they replaced all darkness in my mind
    So I in happiness could e’er abide

    My mind once changed could never be changed back
    Nor could I keep this newfound light contained
    As I returned, my thoughts turned to my task
    Of lighting all the world that would give heed
