Illustrated Thursday – The Chambered Nautilus – Holmes

Thechamberednautilus

 

This verse from Oliver Wendell Holmes’ classic poem, “The Chambered Nautilus”, expresses a sentiment of gratitude from a great poet ostensibly to a mysterious and beautiful sea creature. But that may be just the first layer of this lovely poem – you can find the whole thing here – and the multiple layers of meaning are like our own feeling of thanks for all of the blessings in our lives on this Thanksgiving Day. I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday! Photographs and composition by me.
