The Calming Thought Of All

That coursing on, whate’er men’s speculations,
Amid the changing schools, theologies, philosophies,
Amid the bawling presentations new and old,
The round earth’s silent vital laws, facts, modes continue.

Walt Whitman
Sands at Seventy, 1888

Let the poet’s perspective be my anchor and guide.
