MY NORWAY TRIP DIARY: 5th DAY - LAST PICTURES FROM STAVANGER, AND A METEORITE

The Meteorite
a poem by C.S.Lewis


Among the hills a meteorite
Lies huge; and moss has overgrown,
And wind and rain with touches light
Made soft, the contours of the stone.

Thus easily can Earth digest
A cinder of sidereal fire,
And make her translunary guest
The native of an English shire.

Nor is it strange these wanderers
Find in her lap their fitting place,
For every particle that's hers
Came at the first from outer space.

All that is Earth has once been sky;
Down from the sun of old she came,
Or from some star that travelled by
Too close to his entangling flame.

Hence, if belated drops yet fall
From heaven, on these her plastic power
Still works as once it worked on all
The glad rush of the golden shower.

Defying gravity

A meteorite

Well, I read somewhere that these were a bit strange. So of course I clicked as fast as I could. As strange rather suits me. Fantastic set you have! Particularly the glass of water with the clever DOF kept my attention.
