AEQUAM MEMENTO To keep the soul serene even when we come upon The arduous, and yet remain moderately unmoved When gifts roll in, well, that's my advice for you, Friend Dellius, for you are mortal too. Evenness is good, Whether disasters make Everything crooked, or whether you Can enjoy Sipping, while you...

I counted my years and realized that I have less time to live by, than I have lived so far. I feel like a child who won a pack of candies: at first, he ate them with pleasure but when he realized that there was little...

And since he thought it beautiful for each to be in another's embrace the large watering troughs filled with love the cattle lowered their heads gently, oxen and cows as though the world held no temptations as though knives were yet unknown "To endure peace you need strength," he said and circling...

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...

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...

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...

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...
