Moby Dick filet No.132

Siggi Hofer
The Symphony
"It was a clear steel-blue day. The firmaments of air and sea were hardly separable in that all-pervading azure; only, the pensive air was transparently pure and soft, with a woman's look, and the robust and manlike sea, heaved with long, strong, lingering swells, as Samson's chest in his sleep."

(Beginning of chapter 132)

Illustrated by Siggi Hofer.
