Knowledge Dwarfs Mountains Distanced A Cubit High

an academic with aged masters
readings in English Literature
read a new poet in comparisons
blinkered in rules rigid time set
points fix of similarity difference
comparisons define what is not
lacks insight to see embryo what is
blinded eyes cannot see flame sun

blinded blink sight error shadow eyes
Petrarchan sonnet is Italian Literature
Shakespeare did not mirror fashions
inward journeys dwarf summit Everest
consider mark wonder soul penance
range human contemplation in reverence

The emotions have been captured in your poem in a very careful and precise manner. Can you read from the stains of an empty cup of tea? My life had been like that. These lines are really relatable by many since their life is also no different from that of yours.
