The Undiscovered Country, Pages 94 & 95

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 19 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!

<< I'm back--next post, October 22>>

Madman's Song

Better to see your cheek grown hollow,
Better to see your temple worn,
Than to forget to follow, follow,
After the sound of a silver horn.

Better to bind your brow with willow
And follow, follow until you die,
Than to sleep with your head on a golden pillow,
Nor lift it up when the hunt goes by.

Better to see your cheek grow sallow
And your hair grown gray, so soon, so soon,
Than to forget to hallo, hallo,
After the milk-white hounds of the moon.

Breathtaking! Is this HDR work?

@Kruti: Thanks, Kruti. No HDR for me--I don't use it and am not a big fan of it.
