Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,
As the swift seasons roll!
Leave thy low-vaulted past!
Let each new temple, nobler than the last,
Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
Till thou at length art free,
Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!
(Poem excerpted from The Chambered Nautilus by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.) To read the complete poem, you can go HERE.
I don’t have any photo of my own to contribute to this week’s challenge, but I thought this poem and a photo of a Chambered Nautilus would be appropriate.
