Attempt what is not certain. How correct ! If certainty does not come,as was the case with my poetical attempt today,there is at least a promise that it may be a valuable delusion.
Was my poem a valuable delusion? I don’t believe it to be valuable now when I look back. Ab initio, if one knows it to be a delusion, it will not be a valuable delusion.But there is another thing.It may start out as uncertain but may join other streams of thought within , somewhere along the way and a new certainty may finally emerge. The epigram that comes at the end of the poem from somewhere seals the thought with a surprising finality.
