b'Lovers By Amelia Gauthreaux20 The love of wisdomLighting the flameAcademia is too heavy. Of the mind,What do you know? What do you do? Stealing the breathFrom our lungsThe scholars are praised As we travel higher and higher.And the athletes, Awarded.Wonder meets education,But where are the lovers? Bringing us something likeSatisfaction. Lovers of knowledge But lost is the mindAnd of sunlight. That is not taught love,Those who see the world as it was made to be, That is not taught life. And are entranced.To remember the feeling Of a poem.To remember the taste of a song. The buzz of bees,Like an exaltationTo the heavens above.| 13 |'
