A very young boy was walking
Down the road, going fishing
(As very young boys are apt to do);
As he walked he came upon a very old blind man

Leaning against a tree
With his eyes closed-
He was smiling, very blissful.
The very young boy, curious, walked up to the
very old blind man
And asked, “Why do you have your eyes closed-
And yet are smiling?”
The very old blind man kept his eyes closed,
And responded,
“I am looking at the world.”
