Thanks, Fliss. Yes, they're sort of like a nest of unhatched eggs. I did enjoy your hatched crush poem.

I do have a theory that much written art is “proverbs writ large” (Kenneth Burke) which I demonstrate by analysis of Emerson’s vast commentary on proverbs and the structure of his essays. It’s in: Literary Monographs 8, U of Wisconsin Press: Emerson’s Proverbial Rhetoric.
