Seek Not


Diane Beauton

Oh dear Alice . . .

You see so small,

The world that I designed.

What you see inside your looking glass,

Is wonderland, not mine!

Oh My darling, Dorothy . . .

Clicking at your heels.

For the world you left behind.

You traveled far away from home

In Oz, what did you find?

Oh My sweet beloved . . .

Why do you go so far?

Looking to and fro, running fast and hard.

Whatever you are seeking,

Look in your own backyard!

Oh My child, Nothing has been hidden . . .

You need not seek and find.

All that you are searching for,

You’ve already been given.

Seek not ! You need nothing more.
