My heart unheedful has puffed up

14 Apr 2022 | Humankind | 0 comments

Round me whirled a fiery zone

And the recoil of my word’s airy ripple

My heart unheedful has puffed up and blown.

Therefore I cast myself before thee prone:

Let cool hands on my burning brain and press

From my weak heart the swelling emptiness.


George MacDonald (1824-1905), Diary of an Old Soul.
