…a stone may be round or angular, polished or rough, cracked

like an ill-glazed teacup, or as broad as the breast of a hero.

It may be as flaky as a wafer, as powdery as a field puff-ball;

it may be fused like a glass bottle,

or crystallized like hoar-frost,

or veined like a leaf:

look at the stone, and try to forget

how you were told to “do a stone.”
