Leonard Da Vinci and Goethe
The Eternal Spirit indwelling in Man
Must, with wings outstretched, soar the Empyrean.
His mind in full flight must aim higher than before!
For we embody the animating core
within, which is the living volition.
We both were acmes of our age.
We left vast corpus of inestimable worth
for future generations to unearth.
