A Deep All-Prevading Connection to Soul
Manifests in Outer World.
As I believe in a daisy
Because I see it.
But I do not think about it
Because to think is to not-understand.
The world was not made
For us to think about it
(To think is to have sick vision)
But for us to look at it and assent.
I have no philosophy:
I have senses .
..If I talk of nature, that is not because
I know what nature is
But because I love it, and love is for this only:
For he who loves never knows what he loves
Or why he loves, or what love is.
Loving is eternal innocence
And the only innocence is not-thinking.
