One man came upon another
Who was wise and old and bearded
And who called the first man "Brother."
"Are you here to learn the truth?"
The bearded man inquired.
"It is best, I think, to be informed
Than it is to be inspired."
The wanderer then replied,
"I've been so long traveling
That my spirit wanders as I sleep
And reality's unraveling."
"From hill to desert I have come,
And learned so little from it.
I've come to mind a life spent climbing
Less than I fear the summit."
"Then sit down and I'll teach you
Of the many things I've found.
For I can give your spirit wings
If you'll join me on the ground."
"I'll teach you from my love of man,
For I'm a pilgrim, just like thee"
"So you are, I am certain.
A stationary one, I see."
