First Learn - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

First learn,
How to speak?
What to speak?
When to speak?

And when you are
Going to speak,
Speak the language
In its pure form.

Go not through
History and geography,
And try to know
How you are blossoming
Within in the course
Of nature, my dear.

    The last stanza threw me off a bit. Go not through...: and then what follows I failed to see the meaning of it, but the poem in itself is good, above all the first stanza.

    You did well here considering everything
