Don’t Come To Me With The Entire Truth by Olav H. Hauge

This is a lovely short poem with a wonderful message. Instead of getting all want, sometimes a hint of it is what we need. It creates a sense of wonder and sensation of the whole.

Leonard Durso

Don’t come to me with the entire truth.
Don’t bring the ocean if I feel thirsty,
nor heaven if I ask for light;
but bring a hint, some dew, a particle,
as birds carry only drops away from water,
and the wind a grain of salt.

translated by Robert Bly
