How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast
has this glorious starry firmament for a roof!
In such places standing alone on the mountain-top
it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make
- leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone -
we all dwell in a house of one room
- the world with the firmament for its roof -
and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track.
