That, that I know...
that, that I believe...
are like two trees
in a garden  
with these:
 
there is one tree
wielding fruits  
whose yields are that:
that I know...,
so ever-good for food
and are thus ever-ripe
 
and another tree
wielding fruits  
whose yields are that:
that I believe...
to be desired indeed
and ever-pleasing to the sight.
 
But only the fruits of one
(and not of the other) tree
be this true:  
 
that what is pleasant
may not necessarily be true
(even if so desperately desired so)
and what is true
may not necessarily be pleasant
(even if so pleasing to the sight).
 
That, that I know...
that, that I believe...
are like these
in a garden  
with two trees.

In the garden surrounded by two trees:
what I know, and what I believe.
