Looking Back

by Peter Saint-Andre

I look back gently on the time
    When I had every answer.
From there I've made a steady climb,
    Light-footed as a dancer,
On mountain paths toward starry heights
    Where certainties are few.
The perils of these lonely flights
    Will yield me what is true.

(The Joyful Learning, ยง324)
