'Have I been with you all this time, Philip,' said Jesus to him, 'and yet
you still do not know me?' John 14:9.
 
Perhaps, we're to blame, guided as we are
by the appearance things reveal of facts
accepted: the vagaries of weather
our disposition proves, and all our acts
 
stem from perception of what is the case,
not necessarily so; but an image
is telling, all told, in the public face
of someone; more so, the private, to engage
 
in a glance, know, predict the course it follows,
reciprocally, in the company
a man's known by; not His, whose call allows
of nothing on this earth, but heavenly;
 
invisible, though visible He be,
to those who knew Him: knew Him not, said He.
