That thinks men honest that but seem to be so,
And will as tenderly be led by the nose
As asses are.”

And fare on afoot would find gates of no gardens,
But the hill of dark underfoot diving,
Closing overhead, the cold deep, and drowning.
He is called Leviathan, and named for rolling,”
—William Stanley Merwin (b. 1927)
“We should not moor a ship with one anchor, or our life with one hope.”
