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.
