Learn to Climb (385x640)

Learn to Climb
Kate Rauner

By Kate Rauner

Today’s a good day
Since I learned something new,
A piece of the truth that I never knew.

Learning is something I never regret,
Though what I find out may be hard to accept.
With pain and delight, knowledge conveys
A map of the twists and turns through the maze.

Sometimes what I learn I can use for myself.
Some facts in my mind are like dolls on a shelf.
First there is science for knowing the world,
From tightening a bolt to the cosmos unfurled.

Beauty’s important, and so there is art
To comfort my soul or just for a lark.
I study ethics: I want to be good,
To belong to mankind and my own neighborhood.

There’s no guarantee on the learning I get,
It’s wrong on occasion and sometimes correct.
I will keep questing to learn what is true,
But this is a good day
Cause I learned something new.
