Wise Eyes


Middle Tennessee Walking Trail

The wise move with confidence, led by their eyes,

while the fool uses rashness, false courage and tries

to walk in the dark looking only toward

that which his desire agrees to afford.

He knows there are pitfalls he surely must miss

for if he does not he can blame with a hiss

the Maker of Trails with whom fault surely lies

in thinking all walkers will have open eyes.
