AFFINITY by Florence Earle Coates

ALL are not strangers whom we so misname:
Man's free-born spirit, which no rule can tame,
Careless of time, o'er vasty distance led,
Still finds its own where alien altars flame,
Still greets its own amongst the deathless dead!


Poet, why wilt thou wander far afield?
Turn again home! There, also, Nature sings. . . —from "The Mirror"

Alphabet block M.jpgy primary focus is to "bring back to life" the works of Philadelphia poet Florence Earle Coates (1850-1927). [Also check out works by her brother!] I am a Wiki-Kindergartener who likes to copy, cut, and paste; I am allowed to wander onto the Wikisource playground even though I should probably stick to playing in the sandbox! Please keep me informed of any transcription/factual errors that I might make, and I will try not to whine or ask "Why?" too often! Thank you, and enjoy!

[Gauvain:] "...Putting everything in equilibrium is good; making everything harmonious is better. Above the scales is the lyre. Your republic doses, measures, and rules man; mine carries him up into the clear sky; that is the difference between a theorem and an eagle."

[Cimourdain:] "You will be lost in the clouds."

[Gauvain:] "And you in mathematics."
