Here is Spring's fragile three-eyed sun with some evidence of tendril growth on its surface. A sun of pains.

Beware always of the self-satiated Summer sun always high above us.

William Michaelian said...

True. But the sun, like any other living and dying thing, should perhaps be pardoned for its excessive moods.

Yes, William, but I'm trying to think of something Seferis says somewhere--probably in his Essays --that the Sun dares not overstep its duties, for if it does, the Furies will chase it down.

William Michaelian said...

Which reminds me of the opening lines of Book V of The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel:

The sun turned toward his mother, and his mother, frightened,
rushed to light all her ovens at the sky’s foundations
and cast in forty loaves of bread to feed him well.

So I guess it has its ups and downs.

Or maybe it’s just one tough flower.
