not yet enlightened

afternoon light calm on the green
no movement now but equipoise
the absence of the girls and boys
seeing only what must be seen
a moment now peaceful serene
before we turn to learned joys
far off the bustle and the noise
but closer now the human scene
what if we turn to inward ways
paths leading deeper in the mind
to sunlit groves as yet unbought
we are not actors in these plays
a different purpose we will find
from that which once we taught
