…Ode to Mobi-Dick
“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water,
unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath the loveliest tints of azure…..
Consider all this; and then turn to this green, gentle , and most docile earth;
consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself?”
– Herman Melville
