Oh! Salute to Wisdom (A Short Poem)

Do not grow your age either in fears or in years,
Do not count your time in minutes and hours,
Weeks, fortnight’s months and so on;
Hello! Come on my friend, out of illusions!

But grow far in wisdom and knowledge,
Count your time spectacular achievements first,
And joyful movements best!
Hello! Come on my friend, out of illusions!

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
