Once he knew

Leeuwenhoek couldn’t not know
Once he knew; He couldn’t
not see once he saw

This is a "found" poem, that is the words are written by Patti Digh in her book Life is a Verb. I gave them the format for sherku.

Note: I am assuming the pronunciation of Leeuwenhoek is with 4 syllables. If it is less than 4, or more than 4, then this doesn't really qualify as a sherku with 19 syllables.

What is a sherku?
