Lateral Thinking & Hyperlinks




Maybe is hyper linked story telling " like a song that freed from beat and measure, wanders... like a bird that coasts the wind. " ?

Hart Crane wrote a poem called Forgetfulness.



Forgetfulness


Forgetfulness is like a song
That, freed from beat and measure, wanders.
Forgetfulness is like a bird whose wings are reconciled,
Outspread and motionless, --
A bird that coasts the wind unwearyingly.

Forgetfulness is rain at night,
Or an old house in a forest, -- or a child.
Forgetfulness is white, -- white as a blasted tree,
And it may stun the sybil into prophecy,
Or bury the Gods.

I can remember much forgetfulness.

Harold Hart Crane

"Forgetfulness is white..." Oh yes. That's exactly right.
