Creatures Without Eyes

At the bottom of ev'rything
There is a place without lights--
Without eyes.
But the creatures there see just fine
Without lights and without eyes--
They see fine.
I can never go there to see
Things without lights and their eyes--
I can't see.
Here, there are lights and there are eyes
We see things with light and our eyes--
We see them.
If we did not have lights and not eyes
We would see the world without lights and eyes--
We would see.

"We shall see but a little way if we require to understand what we see."
-Henry David Thoreau
