Boundless Moment

Boundless Moment is inspired by Robert Frost's poem under the same title, where the writer uses nature as a background to contemplate humanity, change, the ambiguity of perception and experience.

A BOUNDLESS MOMENT

He halted in the wind, and — what was that
Far in the maples, pale, but not a ghost?
He stood there bringing March against his thought,
And yet too ready to believe the most.

"Oh, that's the Paradise-in-bloom," I said;
And truly it was fair enough for flowers
had we but in us to assume in march
Such white luxuriance of May for ours.

We stood a moment so in a strange world,
Myself as one his own pretense deceives;
And then I said the truth (and we moved on).
A young beech clinging to its last year's leaves.

Robert Frost (1874 -1963)
