Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Left To Be Kept Undisclosed
To do with a doing with intent to preserve...
That which has been done by those who chose,
Obstacles to overcome.
For purposes to acknowledge a growth...
Unknown by the ones who should excell.
And not be discouraged in limitations to dwell.
Or assume an acceptance of this,
Is a pre-requisite required for one seeking nourishment.
This should be a practice each generation accepts.
But so much is left to be kept undisclosed,
For reasons to keep a truth hidden and unexposed.
To leave budding minds to wither,
On vines dismissed.
While the fruit from them eventually rots.
With a harvesting of mediocrity further drops,
To provide no one a benefit until a wish for this stops.
