sans contexte

- 李白

«Lorsque l'ardeur de ma parole persuasive
Retira de l'âbime obscur de l'erreur
Ton âme profondément déchue,
Et que, pleine d'une atroce douleur,
Tu me racontas tout ce
Qui s'était passé avant moi,
Et cachant ton visages dans tes mains,
Pleine d'horreur et de honte,
Soudain tu pleuras...»
 - N.A. Nekrasov
"So halt'ch's endlich denn in meinen Händen
"Und nenn' es in gewissem Sinne mein."
 - J.W. v. Goethe

Down There

Having gathered, the foam rose.
The lather spilling over, upon the stones:
slippery sheen gleaming; traitorous,
bewitching siren swept almost
silent; bewitching still, but farther down.

Optimism may be the eighth cardinal sin; and if there may be only the Seven then it shall await the Elevation of Pride To pride of place... Wait.
