Epistemology (For Thomas Aquinas, Theologian)

There are many kinds of light,
and many things by light are seen
and all our minds receive the light
which radiates the world;
by this the things of earth all shine
so we may learn and ask and know,
yet this proud earthly light will pale
before the light that shows
what only God’s bright fire unveils,
and gives our sight its power.
