Aerden [userpic]
Comes Shattery, Scattery

I found one of my favorite poems on the Internet! it is from Battlestations! by Diane Carey. I don't know if she wrote the poem or if someone else did.

This is the sixth element,
Time crossing time
Until all stands still,
And we may think.
Study, but touch.
Learn, and later know.
Tame the craggy agonies of toil's time.
Memory and memoring comes late,
Comes shattery, scattery.
When all is done,
It is not to die;
It is to die well.

That is one of the best poems EVER. And one of my favorite Star Trek novels. *hugs a copy of Battlestations* Wow, nostalgia!!

*emphatic nods!* The last novel I've seen by Diane Carey was the one about the dinosaurs; I haven't seen any other Piper books. I wish she'd write more of those.


Really good book.

Yes, it sure was! :D
