Bathed and Washed


"Bathed in fragrance,
do not brush your hat;
Washed in perfume,
do not shake your coat:

"Knowing the world
fears what is too pure,
The wisest man
prizes and stores light!"

By Bluewater
an old angler sat:
You and I together,
Let us go home.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
