The Stepwise Palace - a FSVO sequence
Start | Index | About


On a resounding staircase we ascend
To daylight and a spacious colonnade
That faces hills, rolling without end
To the horizon. Of marble made
Dappled with patterns like to light and shade
On forest floor, or ripples in a lake
As if the same math’matics were obeyed
In rock, in branch, in flesh, in waves that break:
All things with form from this their master-pattern take.
