The Touch (1986)Edit
Putnam Adult, 1986, ISBN 0-399-13144-2
- It seeks but will not be sought.
It finds but will not be found.
It holds the one who would touch,
Who would cut away pain and ill.
But its blade cuts two ways
and will not be turned.
If you value your well-being,
Impede not its way.
Treat the toucher doubly well,
For he bears the weight
Of the balance that must be struck.
- Poem about the Dat-Tay-Vao
