Education by Gwyneth Lewis
gwellha dy wneud.
fydd dy glod.
Learning’s a passport that returns you home
a better person. It permits you to dare
being daring. Makes you secure
with not knowing everything. Helps you welcome
some failure. Forges an alloy
with others’ thinking. It is simple delight
in mind and its motions. Scintillates
but isn’t deceptive. Admits the joy
of institutes, is the open road
to everywhere but bigotry.
It’s the shortest distance between you and me
and, if you’re lucky, it never ends.
