"Worlds on worlds are rolling ever / From creation to decay, / 
Like the bubbles on a river / Sparkling, bursting, borne away."

Percy Bysshe Shelley
 "We are pupils of the animals in the most important things: the spider for spinning and mending, the swallow for building,
and the songsters, swan and nightingale, for singing,
by way of imitation."
We are pupils of all mammals
that we might develop survival technique;
of fish for learning to swim again, of reptiles
for slithering and shape shifting,
 of clouds for acclimating to constant change,
 of the stars from whence we came.
