Treasure Island

George Meredith

(12 February 1828 – 18 May 1909 / Portsmouth, England)

Alternation


Between the fountain and the rill
I passed, and saw the mighty will
To leap at sky; the careless run,
As earth would lead her little son.

Beneath them throbs an urgent well,
That here is play, and there is war.
I know not which had most to tell
Of whence we spring and what we are.
