On These Islands in the Endless Sea

Explore #14 - 21.07.2009 & FP

 

The breeze is making eddies in the mist,

and out of those small whirlwinds come the words:

“I have walked along the bottom of the sea

wrenched into the clouds at Valparaiso;

I have seen the birth of islands and

the build of continents; I

know the rise and fall of mountain ranges,

I understand the wings of pigeons,

peacock feathers, finches; my mind creates

general laws out of large

collections of facts.”

 

From The Voyage Home by Philip Appleman (1926 - )
