Wind blows over the heart
But the heart is fast in the breast,
So only give a sigh after the wind.

Scattering from its cold plumage the drops of the foam,
Then liken the heart rather
To the stream sailed of a swan."

"The failure of the political class to inspire mimesis in the rest of society doesn’t mean that mimesis goes away." --The Archdruid Report
