Turrets assemble saluting the nomadic Rhine,
castles deeply footed in Goethe’s romanticized age
honor the passing river as the dandelions sway

    Man's curiosity is a curse and a blessing I guess. Nice philosophical twist here.
    Why are the archers firing at your ship? I hope this intriguing adventure continues, so we find out. (Report) Reply

    This is the poetry which is rich with esoteric allusions, a standard and well-composed piece with a special lexical choice quite sumptuous according to the classical place of the river Rhine, who can forget Faustus' pride:
    (We saw the river Maine fall into Rhine,
    whose banks are set with groves of fruitful vines.) A great homage offered! ! ! (Report) Reply
