When a philosopher retires,
Does a philosopher stop thinking?
How about a man who knows
A thing about escaping heat?
Would he find retirement
To be too cool?
After facing Hitler and dodging him across Europe
Would a simple non-working life be enough?
After writing bunches of books
Could he sit back a see what was in the tea leaves?
No matter, for Dietrich von Hildebrand
Was one voice of inspiration.
