The Aquarium

1 Conversation

Welcome to The Aquarium,

home to all sorts of wonderful fish. It is a peaceful place where all the fish get along quite happily. Here we share poetry, discuss fishy philosophy, and celebrate the great honor it is to be a fish. Feel free to drop by any time to learn a bit about us, share in our conversations, or simply to swim around for a bit.
I also recommend visiting The Union of Fish

The original inspiration for The Aquarium
Written by Rupert Brooke (1887-1915)

1 Fish (fly-replete, in depth of June,

2 Dawdling away their wat'ry noon)

3 Ponder deep wisdom, dark or clear,

4 Each secret fishy hope or fear.

5 Fish say, they have their Stream and Pond;

6 But is there anything Beyond?

7 This life cannot be All, they swear,

8 For how unpleasant, if it were!

9 One may not doubt that, somehow, Good

10 Shall come of Water and of Mud;

11 And, sure, the reverent eye must see

12 A Purpose in Liquidity.

13 We darkly know, by Faith we cry,

14 The future is not Wholly Dry.

15 Mud unto mud! -- Death eddies near --

16 Not here the appointed End, not here!

17 But somewhere, beyond Space and Time.

18 Is wetter water, slimier slime!

19 And there (they trust) there swimmeth One

20 Who swam ere rivers were begun,

21 Immense, of fishy form and mind,

22 Squamous, omnipotent, and kind;

23 And under that Almighty Fin,

24 The littlest fish may enter in.

25 Oh! never fly conceals a hook,

26 Fish say, in the Eternal Brook,

27 But more than mundane weeds are there,

28 And mud, celestially fair;

29 Fat caterpillars drift around,

30 And Paradisal grubs are found;

31 Unfading moths, immortal flies,

32 And the worm that never dies.

33 And in that Heaven of all their wish,

34 There shall be no more land, say fish.

Fishy Philosophy

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: *his eyes are closed.*
~Albert Einstein
