Seeking Knowledge

By Novid Shaid, 1997


All knowledge worth seeking

is like a never-ending dining table

covered with wholesome food.

Some stand gobbling wantonly

Wanting everything at once

While others only nibble

Their taste buds hardly aroused.

Pray let us sit at the table

With attention to manners and grace

Then let us dine with peace and patience

So we can enjoy the full measure of the taste.
