Robert Graves

                He is quick, thinking in clear images;

                I am slow, thinking in broken images;

                He becomes dull, trusting his clear images;

                I become sharp, trusting my broken images.

                Trusting his images, he assumes their relevance;

                Mistrusting my images, I question their relevance.

                Assuming their relevance, he assumes the fact;

                Questioning their relevance, I question the fact.

                When the fact fails him, he questions his senses;

                When the fact fails me, I approve my senses.

                He continues quick and dull in his clear images;

                I continue slow and sharp in my broken images.

                He in a new confusion of his understanding;

                I in a new understanding of my confusion.
