Parables

There was a man who dwelt in the east centuries ago,
And now I cannot look at a sheep or a sparrow,
A lily or a cornfield, a raven or a sunset,
A vineyard or a mountain, without thinking of him;
Is this be not to be divine, what is it?

The Notebook (c.1894-97).

  1. Beautiful!

  2. Should the last line begin with the word ‘If,’ instead of ‘is’?
