Men Say They Know Many Things

Original Text: 
Collected Poems of Henry David Thoreau, ed. Carl Bode (Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1964): 24. PS 3041 .B6 1964 Robarts Library
1Men say they know many things;
2But lo! they have taken wings, --
3The arts and sciences,
4And a thousand appliances;
5The wind that blows
6Is all that any body knows.
