Spearesques 14


Lesson-mastering self in which ways t'unwork knots!

That I proceed and stop from moving idle

As in the dream of me where,

Tied by underwater weeds, try

Shoreward arm-crawling through high waves, chestdeep,

And carrying the world.  Should rather run dry,

Pedal-off all challenge as a light, swift sand.

With will alone do engineers cut channels;

With an eye to ends, no time in distance.
