You can never

Sandymount Strand 11 You can never

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
“It is futile,” I said,
“You can never—”

“You lie,” he cried,
And ran on.

I saw a man pursuing the horizon by Stephen Crane.

    The composition here is just perfect, Antonella!
    Great gloomy sky as well, just the way I like it!

      Thank you, Niken. There was also a dog somewhere before the man, but unfortunately I wasn’t fast enough to catch it too.
