What We See

To look into the world of sin,
And see men shine like burning gold,
To ask myself from right within,
Can I be just the same-as bold?
And out the answer comes to me:
'The same that governs them, does you.'
its just the way you look, you see-
But of all things, be good and true.

This is a lovely poem, I have not read it before, although I have enjoyed other poems of John Clare.If only we could go back to this simple way of living.
