Till Echoes Fade Away


Till rocks no longer shower from the sky,
Till fir trees can't remember how to sigh,
Till echoes fade away without reply,
Till mountain peaks are nigh instead of high,
Till clouds have all forgotten how to cry,
Till thunder doesn't grumble passing by,
Till clowns forget to tumble on the fly,
Till then I shall but mumble, 'who am I? '

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
