how much?

how much will you tell me
about your day’s doings
your thoughts,
on their rare train of wit
your original seeings
and their vast contribution
to all that the hours permit

how much will you tell me
of what said the teacher
and friends
with their own minds aglow
will your questions
come searching
from schoolroom to doorstep
or answered by others who know

how much will you tell me
your face phosphorescent
with learning
and musings still prime
will you narrate your minutes
to this audience eager
for your tellings
and thinkings
and time

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. – Psalm 5:11
