And the Others by David Berman


Some find The Light in literature;Others in fine art,And some persist in being sureThe Light shines in the heart.Some find The Light in alcohol;Some, in the sexual spark;Some never find The Light at allAnd make do with the dark,And one might guess that these would beA gloomy lot indeed,But, no, The Light they never seeThey think they do not need. 

And the Others by David Berman

Some find The Light in literature;
Others in fine art,
And some persist in being sure
The Light shines in the heart.

Some find The Light in alcohol;
Some, in the sexual spark;
Some never find The Light at all
And make do with the dark,

And one might guess that these would be
A gloomy lot indeed,
But, no, The Light they never see
They think they do not need.
