Turn, turn, my wheel!

Turn, turn, my wheel! September 2, 2013

Turn, turn, my wheel! Turn round and round

Without a pause, without a sound:

  So spins the flying world away!

This clay, well mixed with marl and sand,

Follows the motion of my hand;

For some must follow, and some command,

  Though all are made of clay!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow—Keramos. L. 1.

I am on a pottery course on Lake Malawi! I’ll resume regular posting on my return. Peace, all!
