Travel Notes — Sils Maria

Sils lies six-thousand feet above the sea
Here Nietzsche came and spent some summertimes
The little room he lived in you can see
Not far from where the church sends forth its chimes
Sils is where Zarathustra was conceived
Think high think power and then overcome
He left most past philosophies ungrieved
Sadly he could not see what was to come
The people he despised adopted him
And used his language to describe their way
The wretched world was soon torn limb from limb
I hear his theories are the rage today
A sculpted eagle sits on Nietzsche’s lawn
Across the street I look at it and yawn
