I am the traces
of light and dark
the lost breath of wind
a carousel of flight


you are my eyes
the joys and the tears
of many past goodbyes
and the narrowest of fears

will you remember
the rising of dawns
the length of strides
and twilights into night

look at me now
I am today
look at me tomorrow
I was today

traces...

Indeed, the thought on the cover echoes this one by T.S. Eliot: "Poetry should help, not only to refine the language of the time, but to prevent it from changing too rapidly." Some poets are so great that they prevent a language from changing too rapidly for centuries. One such was Dante. The written Italian language is Dante's gift to Italy. One can still read the original Divine Comedy 700 years after it was written, if one takes the trouble to learn current Italian.

Poetry is nearly like another dimension. Facilitating learning, i.e. by reading lacks perspective. Everybody listens, but nobody really hears. Poetry however, is like the gift of reading what is between the lines. Unrestricted by logic and open to sheer subjectivity to the reader.

The poetical, which applies not only to literature but to all the humanistic disciplines and even science when that science is studied as something with a history made by man, does indeed point beyond itself to the transcendent. It is an intimation of the eternal and the immortal. Without it we descend into the banal and into nihilism, for science by itself cannot solve issues of value.
