Excerpt Tuesday – third set of lines from “The World” – Vaughan

Theworld_pIII couldn’t help myself and had to finish the first six lines of the “The World” by Henry Vaughan (1622-1695). It is one of my favorite opening passages and as I mentioned before, it is the poem that lends the title to and weaves through A Ring of Endless Light by Madeline L’Engle, a book I return to again and again. Read the whole poem here. Photographs (of the Louise Nevelson statue Night Wall I (1972) on the Harvard campus) and composition by me. See last week’s lines from the poem here. Enjoy!
