A chanterelle is not the same as Chantilly,
Yet sometimes there is unexpected beauty:
Victorian ladies dressed in now-antique lace
Could never imagine exploring outer space,
Yet they are in the same continuum of history.
Lighthouses save sailing ships in a storm
Providing a beacon that is safe and warm,
But before the rest of the shore is bypassed,
Look closely to find some lovely sea glass —
There is true kinship, in an unexpected form.
