What We Know – Andrew Dixon

There are always new discoveries to be made…

What We Know

What we know to-day is nothing
but the lapping on the shore.
Beyond the coast of knowledge
is a wider, deeper, store.

As you sail in search of learning
further from the shore
you’ll find, one day, you’re in a place
where no-one’s been before.

And there awaits discovery.
And there your ready mind
can find what no-one knew before
and bring it back to land.
