"à cœur vaillant rien d’impossible [nothing is impossible to a willing heart]" -French Proverb


The Earth has torn itself to pieces;
All the mountains and hills,
All the rivers and rills,
Are coasting on the clouds;
Gorgeous, crumbling palaces.

So thickly they crowd in the sky,
You can leap through the turbulent air,
From one flying isle to the next,
Beyond even the dizziest heights,
Though the castles crumble …

And creak, crack, crash
Down under vice-grip gravity;
And all the mountains and hills
Lock themselves tight to the ground,
Fortresses once more.
