Direct your eyesight inward, and you'll find
A thousand regions in your mind
Yet undiscover'd. Travel them, and be
Expert in home cosmography.
My soule her wings doth spread
And heaven-ward flies,
Th' Almighty's Mysteries to read
In the large volumes of the skies.
Cast me upon some naked shore,
Where I may track
Only the print of some sad wrack,
If thou be there, though the seas roar
I shall no gentler calm implore.
The starres, bright cent'nels of the skies.
Quote of the day
