So admirable and so worthwhile.
It never ‘killed a cat.’
It’s so much more than that.
in one who has it,
It may seem idiosyncratic.
But a treasure trove potential,
Of the jewelled and ideal,
Experiential and essential,
Meant to be a quality of more than ‘simple’,
Curiosity which makes you strong,
Through broadened knowledge,
Every living thing and not, a college,
It is spirit: spirit of enquiry -
For none deny
It is a spirit.
Oddity but spirit always is;
All have, few use,
The masses leaning on old views.
One thinks a thought and wonders why
And where and how and who
And so on till the thought is through.
These days it’s only to pursue
And follow through: so easy
A universal literacy is all that’s needed.
Once seeded, curiosity might gain nobility,
Both well deserved
And In the end, serve self
And all humanity.
