AFFINITY by Florence Earle Coates
ALL are not strangers whom we so misname:
Poet, why wilt thou wander far afield?
y 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."
