THE ROAD TO WISDOM?

 

Well, it's plain

and simple to express.

Err and err and err again,

but less and less and less.

OUT OF TIME
A holiday thought.

My old clock used to tell the time
   and subdivide diurnity;
but now it's lost both hands and chime
   and only tells eternity.

What is a grook?
