“O sinewy silver biplane, nudging the winds withers!
There, from Kill Devils Hill at Kitty Hawk
Two brothers in their twinship left the dune;
Warping the gale, the Wright wind wrestlers veered
Capeward, then blading the winds flank, banked and spun.”
—Hart Crane (18991932)

The sun mere fire, the leaves untroubled about us,
A stone look on the stones face?”
