Illusion ridden genius,
Yea stay again.
Your mind is mussed and tattered;
Your thoughts do naught but swim.

Illusion ridden genius,
Be still
A little longer.
Hear, for once, and listen;
Hear and only ponder.

Illusion ridden genius,
Speak not;
You speak too oft'.
Stay, and only listen;
Let my words ring soft.

Illusion ridden genius,
Now you know the truth,
For through list'ning you have found it;
You've attained a higher proof.

Illusion ridden genius,
Before, you knew it not:
That the mind is stirred more soundly,
When the mouth remains more shut.
