About Crows by John Ciardi

I liked this wise poem quoted by Boyd K. Packer in General Conference today. We can definitely learn from those who go before us, and the youth especially need these 'old crows so they don't fly aimlessly ahead':)

by John Ciardi

"The old crow is getting slow; 
the young crow is not. 
Of what the young crow does not know, 
the old crow knows a lot. 

At knowing things, 
the old crow is still the young crow's master.
What does the old crow not know? 
How to go faster. 

The young crow flies above, below, 
and rings around the slow old crow. 
What does the fast young crow not know?
