Tumbling Knowledge

by Agnes Clarke

Like the tumblers in a gaming machine each piece gains rhythm written

The mind awakens restlessly to knowledge freely given

In tumbling form each book is placed like an avalanche unpacked

But with cunning skill the builder holds the key to unlock his stack

Systematic logic ingrained within the mind bringing a sense to chaos here

Each treasure in pages old the dusty forms of learning clear

In solitude and quietness he sits with diligence and grace

A lifetime work of study written for posterity in place
