Don’t fool the fool

Don’t fool the fool with foolish gems;
He is too wise to understate,
Too happy for the words to mind.
Don’t fool the fool with foolish gems.

Don’t leave in Autumn for a better place,
See it through, the rain and storm,
Be like a fool and do not care.

There is a peace in turmoiled mind,
Acceptance of a higher kind
Only a fool can understand.
Don’t leave in Autumn for a better place.

Be too wise to understand.
Let words be such when nothing rhymes,
Don’t fool the fool with foolish gems.

As such. You are too wise to understand.
Accept me as the fool who minds.
Don’t leave me now it’s Autumn.

  1. “Too wise to understand…”. the baby, the child, the zen…your poem grounds me Ina as the first leaves fall on my garden. But I think I will never understand, even this simple leaf in my hand…or your grief, your grace…

  2. ” Acceptance of a higher kind.” A beautiful line and a good description of part of your character I think 🙂

  3. Another good one. 🙂
