The Undiscovered Country, Pages 80 & 81

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 16 October 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

I'm off to Yosemite, but each day while I'm away I'll post images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!

Loss and Gain

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.

I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.

But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.

—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Elegant. Pristine. It looks like no man has walked here.
Love the zig-zag of light gold color moving across the frame from top to bottom.
