Out For A Walk

When he quit teaching
Friedrich Neitzche
Trod the hills
Near Sils-Maria,
Saying "Alpine air
And I are a pair!
It's bracing as a truth,
Racing like my thoughts,
Panoramic in perspective.
There's a command in its imperative:
Master all that you survey
In the sweep of cultural history
And hammer out a philosophy
With fierce Wotan's audacity."
