The Chambered Nautilus 

by haikuhouse

 Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till though at length are free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!    ~Oliver Wendell Homles Sr.

Read the full poem, as this is just the fifth stanza…My favorite part.

Great analysis of the poem The Chambered Nautilus


Peace & blessings to all,
