    East, west, north, south, or like a school broke up,
    Each hurries toward his home and sporting-place.

    —the dark ajar, the rocks breaking with light,
    and undisturbed, unbreathing flame,
    colorless, sparkless, freely fed on straw,
    and, lulled within, a family with pets,
    —and looked and looked our infant sight away.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)

    And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 1:17,18.
