The same and not quite the same I walked through

The same and not quite the same I walked through oak forests
Amazed that my Muse Mnemosyne
Has in no way diminished my amazement.
A magpie was screeching and I said Magpiety?
What is magpiety? I shall never achieve
A magpie heart a hairy nostril over the beak a flight
That always renews just when coming down
And so I shall never comprehend magpiety.
If however magpiety does not exist
My nature does not exist either.
Who would have guessed that centuries later
I would invent the question of universals?.
