In studying anatomical charts,
it seems some things have been left out.
Carefully following the path of the spine,
nothing I looked for was there to find.
No Will was there to see,
curious, I wondered where it might be.
Looking over the chambers of the heart,
I saw not where love, joy, and sorrow played their part.
More intensely I examined the skull,
nowhere was there marked a place for a soul.
No designation was anywhere given,
for character, thought, or imagination.
I saw clearly how all the blood flowed,
when why is what I wanted to know.
This chart I thought cannot be whole,
more is missing than what is shown.
