The Creation of Ea – Benjamin Newman

Only in silence the word,
only in dark the light,
only in dying life:
bright the hawk’s flight
on the empty sky.

Sad news: Ursula K. Le Guin has passed away, at age 88.  In her memory: the epigraph from A Wizard of Earthsea, set to music by Ben Newman.

Rest in peace, lady.
