Poetry

And if ever the moment comes when they take us apart, my love, don’t lose courage The great human virtue is to hold on to our heart But even greater than this, when needed, is to set our heart aside   Children of the future will be learning about our love...

NON EBUR Ceilings of gold or ivory do not glisten in my house. No beams of Mount Hymettus rest on columns quarried in farthest Africa. Nor have I, an unknown heir, inherited the Palace of Attalus nor do honorable clients spin for me the Spartan purple. But integrity I do possess and a considerable vein...

Don't stay motionless by the side of the road, don't suspend joy or love halfheartedly don't save yourself now or ever. don't save yourself. don't fill yourself with calm. don't reserve a still corner in this world don't let your eyelids droop heavy like judgements don't forsake your lips don't go to sleep without heavy eyes, don't consider yourself bloodless Don't judge...

This now happens, and then that; and later, in a year or two (I think), the same deeds, the same ways. We will not worry about the aftermath. It’s for the best we will strive. And as we strive, we make it worse, we will mix up things until we find...

III. So I talk about you and me Because I love you and in the love I know To enter like a Full Moon From everywhere,like your little foot in the immense sheets To pluck jasmines and I have the power Asleep,to blow to lead you Through moonlight paths and secret arches...

OUT from behind this bending, rough-cut Mask, (All straighter, liker Masks rejected—this preferr’d,) This common curtain of the face, contain’d in me for me, in you for you, in each for each, (Tragedies, sorrows, laughter, tears—O heaven! The passionate, teeming plays this curtain hid!) This glaze of God’s serenest, purest...

The new day comes down from the far mountains, The morning wakening is out of twilight, Adorned and cheerful, and it smiles at humans, It pierces humans, gently, with delight. A new life for the future is unveiling, With blossom, sign of happy days, The wide valley, the earth seems to...

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because...
