The Unhistoric Story, verse 2

October 15, 2018

By AHNZ

“Spider, clever and fragile, Cook showed how
To spring a trap for islands, turning from planets
His measuring mission, showed what the musket could do,
Made his Christmas goose of the wild gannets;
Still as the collier steered
No continent appeared;
It was something different, something
Nobody counted on.”

 

– The Unhistoric Story’,┬áverse 2. Brilliant poem by Allen Curnow
