Returning on the Wave's circulation

…When thou dost return
On the wave's circulation,
Beholding the shimmer,
The wild dissipation,
And out of endeavor,
To change and to flow,
The gas become solid,
And phantoms and nothings
Return to be things,
And endless imbroglio
Is law and the world,
Then first shall thou know
That in the wild turmoil,
Horsed onto Proteus
Thou ridest to power
and to endurance.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson,
intro to “Inspiration”
