"Big Blue" and Poetry
as Natural History

Two Ways


Ashen is between white and black,
Tough is between soft and hard,
Tepid is a property between hot and cold.
But between curse and blessedness
there is no byway which divides them.
One must flee that which the other must have."

Jacobus Revius (1586-1658) (tr. Cliff Cego)
