The Sand Beach As Gray As A Dead Cheek

What is it?

A quote or poem or eulogy by God Emperor Leto Atreides II from maybe his Stolen Journals in the book God Emperor Of Dune by Frank Herbert.


Dune Talk: Leto’s Sacrifice and The Golden Path

Quote/Poem (By Wikiquote)

The sand beach as gray as a dead cheek,
A green tideflow reflects cloud ripples;
I stand on the dark wet edge.
Cold foam cleanses my toes.
I smell driftwood smoke.

Words I wrote when told of Ghani’s death,

God Emperor Leto Atreides II | God Emperor Of Dune | Frank Herbert

My Thoughts

I was reminded of this quote again recently when I was watching a video called Dune Talk: Leto’s Sacrifice And The Golden Path by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas, and I decided to make a post about it; thank you Quinn, and I think that he should make short videos of just him reading various quotes from the Dune books so that we can have good readings of them to share and use.

I think that this is a sad but beautiful and good and accurate and surreal and symbolic quote/poem/eulogy/whatever that I think does a good job describing how some of us feel sometimes after someone we care about/love dies.

The end,
