Shiloh: A Requiem
by Herman Melville

Skimming lightly, wheeling still,
The swallows fly low
Over the field in clouded days,
The forest-field of Shiloh—
Over the field where April rain
Solaced the parched ones stretched in pain
through the pause of night
That followed the Sunday fight
Around the church of Shiloh—
The church so lone, the log-built one,
That echoed to many a parting groan
And natural prayer
Of dying foemen mingled there—
Foemen at morn, but friends at eve—
Fame or country least their care:
(What like a bullet can undeceive!)
But now they lie low,
While over them the swallows skim,
And all is hushed at Shiloh.

Wassily Kandinsky 1907 Das Bunte Leben (The Colorful Life), oil on canvas, Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich, Germany

“Moby dick” Herman Melville, 1851.
Pueden ustedes llamarme Ismael. Hace algunos años, no importa cuántos exactamente, con poco o ningún dinero en mi billetera y nada de particular que me interesara en tierra, pensé en darme a la mar y ver la parte líquida del mundo. Es mi manera de disipar la melancolía y regular la circulación.
