"I play at the edges of knowing"

I read this today and loved it so I had to share it.

Lest we would sift it down
into fractions, and facts
and what the soul is, also
I believe I will never quite know.
Though I play at the edges of knowing,
truly I know
our part is not knowing,
but looking, and touching, and loving,
which is the way I walked on,
through the pale-pink morning light.

Mary Oliver, Why I Wake Early (2004)
