From Wikipedia.org

of a polymath mind
he played for philosophers
poetic music arranged to
release Sturm und Drang
underwriting profound
minor key deviation
from rational scores of
enlightenment singing
instead through his verse
and his prose of heroic
romanticist men whose
intuitive range of emotions
created aesthetic dynamic
for learning each person
a whole discrete unit of
practical knowledge all
wisdom a personal cache
of hands-on experience

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
