Humbert Wolfe
You cannot hope
to bribe or twist,
thank God! the
British journalist.

But, seeing what
the man will do
unbribed, there's
no occasion to.
Wolfe quotes
The children play
At hide and seek
About the monument
To Speke.
And why should the dead
Explorer mind
Who has nothing to seek
And nothing to find?
Wolfe
Space is a wind that does not blow
On Betelgeuse and time oh time is a bird,
Whose wings have never stirred
The golden avenues of leaves
On Betelgeuse.
