Seventy Endeavors


As Helios fades from Neptune´s seas, beyond the Pillars of Hercules, above Plato´s mythic sunken halls, across lost Atlantis twilight falls. Ere dark fathoms blacken a sundial´s tusk, Hegel´s owl of Minerva takes flight at dusk. In the language art of the formal versifier, not unlike Bakunin´s foreknowledge, the antithesis of hindsight, social science prescience appears cheek by jowl with Hegel´s owl in the belles-lettres of Seventy Endeavors.
