Learning the scriptures is easy

Learning the scriptures is easy;
but living them, that’s hard.
Far easier to read words on a page
than to seek the living heart of things.

Fumbling through the fog of study,
stumbling, I lost my last words.
     — And my vision cleared.
     Oh the sight that met me then!
