First Encounter With Elephants For Blind Eyes - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
the moral of the famous fable right
tale 'the blind man and the elephant'
is clear to see when eyes contrast
other senses with perception sight...
the eye sees knows with clarity
all objects identified in memory
but blind both orbs of prime identity
clarification and enter strange mystery...
will touch be first accurate measure yardstick?
will ears hear identify absolutely no sound quick?
what strange tales will smell to new fragrance tell?
what blind taste tests would rapidly condemn to hell?
Clever humorous and entertaining bold
lies a wonderful poem for young and old
especially children; this famous tale has
more versions than cats have nine lives...
but the moral should be when blind
examine the entire animal for detail and
consider all the facts figure all angles
knowing no memory aids not blind eyes...
