Within you:  now with strong unerring grasp
On the other side he of Amphitryon named
Of mortal-slayer Mars, while to and fro
In battle.  He the undaunted son of Jove
Distinct; nor wonder:  this of mortal man,
From the ripe vines, which from the vintagers
And from the darkening lashes of her eyes,
Of loves' all-charming goddess:  fair she was,
She breathed enamoring fragrance, like the breath,
War-mighty, he of war shall take his fill."
With mortal men:  both from her tressed head,
Went forth, and to the fell Eurystheus bore
Of lofty branch, pine tree, and poplar deep
He with the modest partner of his bed
Lay stretched amidst them, and two boars beside
With mortal men:  both from her tressed head,
Slain by his hand; to Creon suppliant came,
Next them were knights, painful effort made
Might one in prudence vie, of all who sprang
And from the darkening lashes of her eyes,
"O hero Iolaus!  Dearest far
Taphians and Teloboans, this the task
War-mighty, he of war shall take his fill."
Of love's all-charming goddess:  fair she was,
Amphitryon sinned, when to the fair-walled Thebes
Of wisdom; who from his parental home
Maddened to sudden rage:  his native soil
Of love's all-charming goddess:  fair she was,
Anarchy Unmasked
I met murder on the way--
And upborne on wings whose grain
Like a dream's dim imagery:
Thoughts sprung whereever that step did fall
Brighter than the viper's scale,
Like the vapor of a vale:
And was proceeding with intent
Over English land he passed,
Seven blood-hounds followed him:
The horse of death tameless as wind
A rushing light of clouds and splendor.
For he knew the palaces
Had turned every drop of blood
And glare with lightnings as they fly.
Lawyers and priests, a motley crowd,
Over the heads of men--so fast
'You are not, as impostors say,
As stars from night's loose hair are shaken,
With waiting for a better day;
Brighter than the viper's scale,
A sense awakening and yet tender
Misery, oh, misery!'
He had a mask like Castlereagh--
Looked--and ankle-deep in blood,
And he wore a kingly crown;
Small at first, and weak, and frail
Like tower-crowned giants striding fast,
This sweetly-maddening dream of soul
What can now relief impart?
And every hour should well my stor;
Her bosom, like the dew-washed rose,
Would that I were a golden vase,
Piping , as they roam along,
Oh!  If delight could charm no more,
When thus I drink, my heart refines,
The foe's within, and triumphs there.
And art a kindly, cordial host;
That graceful form within its folds;
The quiver of the expiring boy:
Richest, happiest, first of men;
She too, for whom that harp profusely shed
Anatomy of Acadia
Will be proclaimed as law in the land.  Alas! In the meantime
Touched were their hearts at her story, and warmest and friendliest welcome\
Silently, therefore, he laid his hand on the head of the maiden.
Borne aloft on his comrades' arms, came Michael the fiddler.
Day by day they glided adown the turbulent river
Garlands of Spanish moss and of mystic mistletoe flaunted,
Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October
Friends they sought and homes; and many, despairing, heart-broken
Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed
Fell from her beautiful lips, and blessed the cup as she gave it.
Distant, secluded, still, the little village of Grand-Pre
Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands
"Once in an ancient city, whose name I no longer remember,
And as she gazed from the window, she saw serenely the moon pass
Such was the vision Evangeline saw as she lumbered beneath it.
Sounds of psalms, that were sung by the Swedes in their church a Wicaco.
Linger a few Acadian peasants, whose fathers from exile
And the streets still reecho the names of the trees of the forest,
There old Rene Leblanc had died; and when he departed,
Waste are those peasant farms, and the farmers forever departed!
Wearing her Norman cap, and her kirtle of blue, and the ear-rings
Strongly have built them and well; and breaking the glove round about them,
With them Evangeline went, and her guide, the father Felician.
That the dying once more might rejoice in thier fragrance and beauty.
Thronged were the streets with people; and noisy groups at the house-doors
Only along the shore of the mournful and misty Atlantic
Ran through her frame, and, forgotten, flowerets dropped from her fingers,
Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands,
Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever,
But made answer the reverend man, and he smiled as he answered,--
Yet must I bow and obey, and deliver the will of our monarch;
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answeres the wail of the forest.
Where is the thatch-roofed village, the hime of Acadian farmers,--
Dreamlike, with beaming eyes and the rush of fluttering garments.
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
We will follow him fast, and bring him back to his prison."
Lighted less by the lamp than the shining face of the maiden.
Then, with a smile of content, thus answered Basil the blacksmith,
Men and women and children, who, guided by hope or by hearsay,
Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever,
Suffering much in an old French fort as the friend of the English.
Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever
Saw at his side only  one of all his hundred descendants.
Thousands of tolling hands, where theirs have ceased from their labors,
All that clamorous throng; and thus he spake to his people;
Such as at home, in the olden time, his fathers before him
Men and women and children, who, guided by hope or by hearsay,
Under the humble walls of the little Catholic churchyard,
"Sunshine of St. Eulalie" was she called; for that was the sunlight
Built are the house and the barn.  The merry lads of the village
Where is the thatched-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers,--
Fear no evil, my friend, and tonight may no shadow of sorrow
By untimely rains or untimelier heat have been blighted,
Back to its nethermost caves retreated the bellowing ocean,
Ever as faithful subjects, a happy & peaceable people!
With them Evangeline went, and her guide, the father Felician.
Stand like druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it
Friends they sought and homes; and many, despairing, heart-broken,
Meanwhile had spread in the village the tidings of ill and on all sides
This is the forest primeval:  but where are the hearts that beneath it
Suffered no waste nor loss, though filling the air with aroma.
Spreading between these streams are the wondrous, beautiful prairies;
Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman?
Unto their eyes it seemed the lanps of the city celestial,
But all perished alike beneath the scourge of his anger
Then form his leathern pouch the farmer threw on the table
Stand like druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
This is the forest primeval, the mumering pines and the hemlocks,
Now from the country around, from the farms and neighboring hamlets
Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven?
Floated the boat, with its dripping oars, on the motionless water.
Into her thoughts of him time entered not, for it was not.
Where is the thatch-roofed village, the hime of Acadian farmers,--
Rushed with extended arms and exclamations of wonder
Foremost the young men came; and, raising together their voices,
Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands,
Homeward serenely she walked with God's benediction upon her.
"Welcome, Basil, my friend!  Come, take your place on the settle
"Let us bury him here by the sea.  When a happier season
Pleasantly rose next morn the sun on the village of Grand-Pre.
Made the bright air brighter, as up from the numerous meadows,
This is the forest primeval, the murmering pines and the hemlocks,
That the angel of death might see the sign, and pass over
Children's children rode on his knee, and heard his great watch tick.
Thousands of aching brains, where theirs no longer are busy.
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail fo the forest.
Men and women and cildren, who, guided by hope or by hearsay,
Wealth had no power to bribe, nor beauty to charm, the oppressor;
Called by the pious Acadian peasants the summer of All-Saints!
Loud form its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Then at the door of Evangelin's tent she sat and repeated
He was beloved by all, and most of all by the children
Spreading between these streams are the wondrous, beautiful prairies
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Thither, by night and by day, came the sister of mercy.  The dying
"Only beware of the fever, my friends, beware of the fever!
Bearing a nation, with all its household gods, into exile,
This is the forest primeval.  The murmuring pines and the hemlocks
Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers,--
Mingled their sounds with the whir of the wheels and the songs of the maidens.
Yet under Benedict's roof hospitality seemed more abundant:
Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman
Many a weary year had passed since the burning of Grand-Pre.
Banana Splitsville
He gave his gems and jewell'd sword:
That top the fierce cordilleras,
Closes eyed me with bright pink eyes.
In such wild haste of flight that we
In my left hand I held a shell,
O bright, bronzed maidens of the sun!
To him, and so shall to the end.
For life is but a beggars's lie,
And strangely fair and princely soul'd,
A perfect fleet, that on the blue
And loved it more than I can tell,
And Willamette meeets the sun
Ere yet the boat had touch'd the land
Of song along the rim of dawn.
And low voice lifted, questioning.
Yet by their leader held the while
The dark crowd crept and did the same,
A gift by chief and comrades made
The loss of comrades, power, place
These men dismounted, doffed their cares,
Barlow Knife
To drop the monarch and assume the man
And change pure praise for infamy and scorn?
Bid young Alcides, in his grasp who takes,
No!  'Tis the present world that prompts the song,
In northern climes, where feudal shades of late
The Conspiracy of Kings
That great phenomenon, a sceptered sage.
And seeks anew what first it gained from heaven.
Then to restore on death-devoted plains,
Machines in war and sycophants at court,
The Conspiracy of Kings
Where spreads the widest waste of all extemes,
The Conspiracy of Kings
These are the vampires nursed on nature's spoils;
Of France the outcast and of earth the scorn;
Nor Frederic's widowed sword, that scorns to tell
The unwonted voice, that no dissuasion awes,
Think not I come to croak with omened yell
The Conspiracy of Kings
The full fruition of the hopes of man
Of the last garb of decency of sense,
The Conspiracy of Kings
Before the Mast
Why look ye on each other so,
He goes!--so thou must loose thy hold,
To live the child of woe, nor shed a tear,
"How like a pall are ye to me!
A wild and shifting light.
Ocean has swallowed for its food
There stands the man unblest.
Awake ye, Merlin!  Hear the shout from Spain!
Who's sitting on that long, black ledge,
The shadow stands!  His eyes are on thee, Lee!
His eye is fierce, his oaths are loud;
Her touch is cold; he hears a piercing shriek;--
With pen of steel, and ink of blood!
Better Things for Better Living
High rank, like self
Bequeath their own doom.
Or the good of the mind is its depth,
Will not be separated from his goods.
Or say that it is mastery of men;
What's gained therefore by threatening them with death?
Its virtue fosters them,
Great space has no corners;
Is then the world unkind?
Be aware of your glory and honor;
The gate to the root of the world.
The five colors darken the eye;
Thus he will choose this but not that.
Be the chief but never the lord:
And knowing ones not venturing to act.
When fame and success
As to stop when you should.
In being an unselfish amn?
A clay bowl is molded;
Scheme and be sharp
Is produced by magic means!
But surely not The Way!
Billy Bard
How far a modern quill doth come too short,
Mark how with my neglect I do dispense:
Some say thy fault is youth, some wantonness;
Then others for the breath of words respect,
This thought is as a death, which cannot choose
Shall sum my count and make my old excuse,'
Then give me welcome, next my heaven the best,
Grows fairer than at first, more strong, far greater.
Of their fair subject, blessing every boo.
For as the sun is daily new and old,
Within the knowledge of mine own desert,
And I am still with them and they with thee;
And though they be outstripped by every pen,
Beauty's effect with beauty were bereft,
Or to thyself at least kind-hearted prove:
Doth part his function and is partly blind,
Like feeble Age, he reeleth from the day,
I think good thoughts whilst others write good words,
That on himself such murderous shame commits.
Bionic Ebb
I mourn for Adonis--Adonis is dead,
The rose fades from his lips, an upon them just parted
And the bosom, once ivory, turning to ruddy.
Cypris is widowed, the loves seek their lord
You fly me, mournful one, fly me far.
I mourn for Adonis--the loves are lamenting.
All the house through in vain.  Charm of Cestus has ceased
No more "Hymen, Hymen," is chanted about.
--When, ah, ah!--she saw how the blood ran away
The kiss dies the goddess consents not to lose,
Arise, wretch stoled in black; beat your breast unrelenting
And his eyeballs lie quenched with the weight of his brows,
Her tears, to the wind-flower; his blood, to the rose.
And shriek to the worlds, "Fair Adonis is dead."
She wept tear after tear with the blood which was shed,
And the poor Aphrodite, with tresses unbound,
The cest taking hue from the gash in the limb
Gather up the red flower of her blood, which is holy,
Pale he lay, your Adonis, in purples reclining;
The rose fades from his lips, and upon them just parted
She lost her fair spouse and so lost her fair smile:
And his eyeballs lie quenched with the weight of his brows,
And one carries the vases of gold from the springs,
Love him still, poor Adonis, cast on him together
The kiss dies the goddess consents not to lose,
No more "Hymen, Hymen," is chanted about.
Bitch of Amherst
Then sought the dust--
Transported with compassion
Whose adequate supply
Mine--by the royal seal!
In process of the noon became--
Up life's hill with my little bundle
Inviolable compact
Or better, be with me--
Our blank in scorning--
Demosthenes has vanished
Nor like the gnat--had I--
To stump, and stack--and stem--
Unto a velvet limb--
Makes he mud for dog and peddler
The morns are meeker than they were--
To lose one's faith--surpass
With morning's warming light
Lest the phantasm--prove the mistake--
And that was in the sod.
That disappears as comes--
Some say.
If pain for peace prepares
For her brief crest--
If I weld the rivet faster--
A revelation of yourself
From enterprise below!
Alien and vain whatever clime
Was all the one that played.
I'd bring them every flower that grows
Whose cheek is this?

Those who begin today--
We might look for him!
How martial is this place!
Not any nearer for the child
This merit has the worst
But take away as difficult

I know for I have tried
Bounteous prepared--
Whether she met with gales--
Bred as we, among the mountains,
Is freely mine.
'Twas a small town--
The color of the grave is green--
A more tenacious mass of clammy juice.
'Tis time to touch the precepts of an art
With his last voice, 'Eurydice' he cried.
To shade good fellows from the summer's heat.
Betray no wound on his unbroken skin.
Have you beheld, when from the goal they start.
The loud applauses of his master's hand:
In length of time produce the laboring yoke,
A time will come, when my maturer muse
With trunks of elm and oaks the hearth they load,
Fire from his eyes, clouds from his nostrils flow:
The mountain robbers rushing to the prey.
The male has done:  your care must now proceed
All other themes that careless minds invite

Upon you the details of all our petty annoyances caused

German, and Mexican; the leperos, with their rugged blankets,
Fountains.  The little Count is already one of the chamberlains
This evening the Senora A-- came after it was dark,

Shall I now deity minister and Cybele's familiar be?
And so to domicile of Cybele tingling lazily
Exhilarate excite from error her anima
And with liquid mind saw without what and where he was
Over high seas Attis swift shipped
Others incite, others drive rabid.
Twin gods' ears with new announcements referring
I cold green Ida's snow-capped locale cultivate
And went to woods wrapped opaquely location divine
Where wood-dwelling deer, where forest-wandering boar
There sleep fleeing quick away from excited Attis
I, a maenad, I part me, I a man sterile to be
And go to their opaque furious lairs
There from joined yokes Cybele released the lions
Where cymbal sounds voice, where tympani rebound
At the same time furiously inhaling vagrant wades spirit driven
The revelers suddenly with trembling tongues yodel
There always all life's space her familiar he was.
Cock-eyed Cowboy Crooner
"O whitest Galatea, can it be
That you should spurn me off who love you so?
My mother had borne me finned like a fish,
The wooded Aetna pours down through the trees
Its red heart down its leaves!--one gift, for hours
You come to me with the fragrant sleep,
Come, keep my flocks beside me, milk my cow,--
Your soul on fluttering wings?  If you were bent
And, having come, forget again to go!
Yet..Ho!  Ho!--I--whatever I appear,
Flies the grey wolf!--Yet love did overcome me,
Did wrong me sore!  I blame her!--Not a word
And after, in the cold, it's ready pressed!
And, as they call, do laugh out silverly.
Most precious thing I have, because thereby
Do feed a thousand oxen!  When I have done,
If still your face were turned; and I would bring you
On grapes that swell to ripen,--sour like you!
That future which is fugitive aright?
But then--sad--man messing what eloquence
Your onyx, chaste bred quite just in bed
Extending smoothe arms has promised
Unwillingly I abjured from you and your head
Unguents many a million I drank
A little wet from the flood retreat to the temple of my god
Turned to the west, slow I lead before Bootes
Same me that Conon in celestial light envisioned
Next to Aquarius effulgent Orion.
The Zephyrite herself had sent her familiar
But then sad man missing what eloquence
Berenice's comet
A little before unjoining sister hairs my fate
As to you then whole heart solicited
And there to all the gods for sweet conjugal
Made an oath let which inane adjourn.
For I from the undignified no premiums petition,
Sweet love from airy gyres devolves:
A dweller from Greek Canopus' shores.
Did your orb not lament the empty bed?
Dark Medley
Kyrie eleison!
Jump back, honey, jump back.
The young woman-smell
Jump back, honey, jump back
Let me settle w'en my shouldahs draps they load
Jump back, honey, jump back.
Then men like us may come to have a day.
Let me settle w'en my shouldahs draps they load
We smile, but O great Christ, our cries
Slim grin, and he speak up,
A passel of them golden biscuits,
Lord, ain't mine!
Fo' to stay up here..."
They who have shackled us
I am ringing worlds on high:
And my Negroness a state of mind conjured up
But it was there then,
Hover in the reek
And a pain still throbs in the old, old scars
In heaven no single star, on earth no track;
To see what shifts are yet in the dull play
In bronze sublimity she gazes forth.
To meet one erring in that homeless wild.
But waits the outstretched hand to promptly render
I heard another couple join in talk,
As I came through the desert:  all was black,
Quick wings for time, and see it fly from us--
Perpetual recurrence in the scope
There sweet sleep is not for the weary brain;
Broods maddening inwardly and scorns to wreak
Or lame or blind, as preordained to languish
"Here faith died, poisoned by this charnel air."
For this is law, if law there be in fate:
Then, turning to the right, went on once more,
That draft whose slumber nothing can bereave.
Or down the river's boiling cataracts.
Which brought an ecstacy ineffable
The moon and stars may shine with scorn or pity;
In helpless impotence to try to fashion
Some old god's-acre now corruption's sty:
If we could near them with the flight unknown.
O battling in black floods without an ark!
Donne Deal
This or that happiness, to arrest his mind,
So short is life, that every peasant strives,
Nothing but she, and her you have overpast.
Was far too little, to have been the base;
As suburbs, or the microcosm of her,
Star-light enough, to have made the south control,
This man, so great, that all that is, is his,
Them their disease, who fain would think they're well.
To know by catechisms and alphabets
Or with bought colors to elude men's sense,
Only death adds to our length:  nor are we grown
No accident could threaten any link,
We see in authors, too stiff to recant,
Goes through, not staying till his course be run;
And learns thus much by our anatomy
Men thus lethargic have best memory.
Our blushing red, which used in cheeks to spred
To take one precious thing, your soul, from there.
If this commerece twixt heaven and earth were not
Which did begin to love, are neither now,
Till man came up, did down to man descend,
The worlds infection, to be none of it.
She gave protections; the thoughts of her breast
So will the poison of sin, in the most low.
Some figure of the golden times, was hid.
Enchanted Forest
No twist, no twig, no bough, nor branch, therefore,
That it be raised by Egypt's aid and power:
Drawing his rival to attend word;
Ye powers infernal, worthier far to sit
Argant the adventurers of their guide deprives;
That strange it seemed how much good she knew;
How like to Godfrey looks he in the face!
And, horned like a bull, his forehead bold
His aged father strong Clorinda slew,
To have that castle fair of goodness razed:
Divided far by sea from Europe's shore.
In height and clearness which the rest excel;
At last her earnest suit the duke denyed,
Old scars of grievous wounds received of yore.
As white as snow upon the alpine clift
Among the soldiers, great amazement bred;
Of worth and might the noble badge he bore,
'Mid lovely ladies, lesser flowers were they.
So fed the fire so trapped my heart and tore it.
And goo hath perished in the evil clime,
As I learned, was accustomed to make that same assertion
matters which arose fro discussion, we passed the two
Dear to me, I should have preferred to have been born
In vain against my fate I spend my breath
Lights which so oft gave envy to the sun:
Claim to be experienced in such matters; still, old age will triumph.
For never could my spirit find
The hooded orders, black and grey and white,
Nothing is coming of this effort, and, what is to me the worst
Still in that cherished plant have I reposed
And you, oh holy air and hushed
World, should deprive him of any chance of military
Were still strong, I not only abruptly threw off my bad
Another thought, which mingles sour and sweet,
I am an inn for everlasting dole.

A song of bale and bitter sorrow sings,
To a broad gate, all built of beaten gold:
Found no defect in his Creator's grace,
If ever he transgressed the fatal Stygian laws.
In all that room was nothing to be seen,
A crowd of people there assembled were,
From whence the gods have her for envy thrust:
Approach, although his drowsy den were next
Son, said he then, let be thy bitter scorne,
And with his pride all others power deface:
Riches, renoune, and principality.
And him that reigned, into his room thrust down,
Through that thick covert he him led, and found
Glistering in arms and battle array,
Whose upper end to highest heaven was knit,
Does show to him, that walks in fear and sad affright.
The gate was open, but therein did wait
To him did open, and afforded way;
Did never in that house itself display,
Which whenas Guyon saw, he did inquire,
That was Ambition, rash desire to climb,
And round about him lay on every side
Break in, and spoil the treasure there in guard
When foggy mists, or cloudy tempests have
With crowns and diadems, and titles vain,
And these rich heaps of wealth does hide apart
Thy works for wealth, and life for gold engage.

Some mourning words, which in our feeble tongue
Could so have rapt unwilling life away.
So white the line, so, in some, distinct

I must not think now, though I saw that face--
When in mid-way the sickening east wind

But for her eyes I should have fled away.
As if with wings; but the fair trees were gone,
Pressing haste, as too unholy there;

Of grey cathedrals, buttressed wall, rent toweres,
With leaves all hushed; his awful presence there

And all the gloom and sorrow of the place,

Jerusalem Dismembered
And the four points are thus beheld in great eternity
Came from the furnaces, by Los's mighty power for Jerusalem
O god of Albion descend!  Deliver Jerusalem from the oaken groves
Till the plow of Jehovah, and the harrow of Shaddai
Not only of the substance from which it is derived
That toward Eden, four; immortal gold, silver, brass & iron
Every substance is clothed, they name them good & evil
Dance the dance of death contending with Jehovah among the cherubim
Our father Albion's sin & shame!  But father now no more!
The eastern gate, fourfold:  terrible & deadly its ornaments:
The bellows & the hammers move compell'd by Los's hand
Thence feathered with soft crimson of the ruby bright as fire
O what is life & what is man.  O what is death?  Wherefore
With great labor upon his anvils & in his ladles the ore
Travelling through the night:  for from its dire
Its guards, living, the work of elemental hands, laborious task!
Jesus said.  Would you love one who never died
What are those golden bulders doing?  Where was the burying place
But I am living!  Yet I feel my emanation also dividing
The banks of the Thames are clouded!  The ancient porches of Albion are
Of God, to destroy Jerusalem & to devour the body of Albion
Whose springs are unsearchable & knowledge infinite.
Upon my furnaces, from within the wheels of Albion's sons:
Her joy & love, a shade:  a shade of sweet repose:
Weep not so sisters!  Weep not so!  Our life depends on this
The Canaanite, the Amalekite, the Moabite, the Egyptian:
Your brothers call you, and your fathers, and your sons.
That toward Ulro, clay:  that toward Eden, metals.
That toward Generation, four, of iron carved wondrous:
For lo! The night of death is past and the eternal day
The birds of song to murderous crows, his joys to bitter groans!
Then Erin came forth from the furnaces & all the daughters of Beulah
From every one of the four regions of human majesty,
But animated & vegetated, she is a devouring worm:
That creeps forth in a night & is dried in the morning sun
But Alvion fell down a rocky fragment from eternity hurled
The sons & daughters of Los that he might protect them from
Golgonooza:  Los walks round the walls night & day.
Methuselah, Lamech; these are the giants mighty, hermaphroditic
The south, a golden gate, has four lions terrible, living!
Into the furnaces & into the valleys of the anvils of death
Wales & Scotland shrink themselves to the west & to the north!
The cruel warrior.  I have refused to give love to Merlin the piteous
Came from the furnaces, by Los's mighty power for Jerusalem's
Shall Vala bring you forth!  Shall the chaste be ashamed also?
Beneath Beulah:  as a watery flame revolving every way
And as they wove & cut from the looms in various divisions
And Luban stands in middle of the city, a moat of fire.
And all the gate of Los, clouded with clouds redounding from
the seven diseases of the earth are carved terrible
What shall I do!  Or how exist, divided from Enitharmon?
Then Erin came forth from the furnaces & all the daughters of Beulah
Upon my furnaces, from within the wheels of Albion's sons:
In gnawing pain dividing him from hsi emanation;
A murderer of its own body:  but also a murderer
Of Satan, in his mortal pilgrimage of seventy years
Of every divine member:  it is the reasoning power
Like men, hermaphroditic, each winged with eight wings
His birds are silent on his hills, flocks die beneath his branches
What shall we do for you O lovely mild Jerusalem?
Till he shoulod bring the sons & daughters of Jerusalem to be
The sons & daughters of Los that he might protect them from
Translucent the furnaces, of beryl & emerald immortal
Shame divides families, shame has divided Albion in sunder!
Yet why despair!  I saw the finger of God go forth
Every substance is clothed, they name them good & evil

There is a void outside of existence, which if entered into

He might feel the pain as if a man gnawed his own tender nerves.
As he watches the furnaces by night & directs the laborers
Surrounded by their children, if they embrace & coming lie

There is a void, outside of existence, which if entered into

Burdens become light when cheerfully born
The good are heaven's peculiar care
In the pool where you least expect it will be found a fish
The most delightful pleasures cloy without variety
One ungrateful man does an injury to all who stand in need of aid
More interest in the punishment of injury than he who receives it
If a better system is yours, import it; if not, use mine.
What is hurtful and what sholesome
Posterity should inquire shy no statues were erected
Presents which our love for the donor has rendered precious
Everyone can remember that which has interested himself
Again angry with himself when he returns to reason
Benefits and friendly offices I have done to others
Each loves himself the best
How often events by chance unexpectedly come to pass
The first virtue is to restrain the tongue
No gain so certain as from sparing what you have
All see and judge better in the affairs of others
No wickedness proceeds on any grounds of reason
Opposites are yet linked together
Remembers more willingly what excites his ridicule
Money is a handmaiden if you know how to use it; a mistress if you do not.
The body overcharged with the excess of yesterday weighs down the mind.
Those who are wiser fear the consequences
Never add to them the deformity of vice
Do you seek sauce by labor?
We in vain summon the mind to intense application
Dignity and love do not blend well
Time will bring to light whatever is hidden
Consult the lives of other men as we would a looking glass
Courage in danger is half the battle.
Metamorphosis of One-eyed Ajax
He cries for help:  I come--I see him lie--
And the vast shield, where shines the pictured world,
Or shall I stand excluded from my right
Mine, shows the fierce thrusts of a thousand spears.
Thine, which, to suit your soul, were only made
A prowess never shining but by night.
The weapons destined for the fall of Troy.
Till one, more artful, made his fraud appear?
Thus is he dangerous only to his friends.
Who strove, with loud reproaches, to restrain
Is soon among the foremost in the flight.
I was the champion called to that proud field--
That he, the aid he would not give, should need.
Nor should this high descent, in this great cause
Till one, more artful, made his fraud appear?
His hated name among a hero's race?
Now ask for arms, and dare to ask for these?
Nor need I to the Greeks my deeds display--
And why should you another's arms require?
And the vast shield, where shines the pictured world,
Misfits, Looney Tunes, and Sordid Criminals
Come all you youth's companions
But deep into his bosom
In sorrow for to die.
How Dan Kelly's clan shot them down to a man,
Yes, tell her, dear, oh do,
Not many years ago,
But every nook and corner knows of Jesse James.
I've had my worldly pleasure,
Two men went down before me
Nor to one prayer allow, as I sailed, as I sailed.
And the men they did divide;
Is more than I will do.
And children to beg for their bread.
And when he fell he closed his eyes
But never hang down your head."
He said, "For money for a ticket
That's why I'm on the scaffold
On a cold November day;
Away out in the West.
And women have made me deranged."
Maud with her exquisite face,
The shrill-edged shriek of a mother divide the shuddering night.
O child, you wrong your beauty, believe it, in being so proud;
Like things of the season gay, like the bountiful season bland,
Half-lost in the liquid azure bloom of a crescent of sea,
But an ashen-grey delight.
That it should, by being so overwrought,
To have no peace in the grave, is that not sad?
Not let any man think for the public good,
Deeper, ever so little deeper
The shadow still the same;
So many a million of ages have gone to the making of man:
But I know where a garden grows,
But I trust that I did not talk
But arose, and all by myself in my own dark garden ground,my pulses closed their gates with a shock on my heart as I heard
And the flying gold of the ruined woodlands drove through the air.
And says he is rough but kind
Men were drinking together
O child, you wrong your beauty, believe it, in being so proud;
And I was cursing them and my doom,
And the whole little wood where I sit is a world of plunder and prey.
Morgante Minor
The only true god is the Christians' god.
And fearing that he might be hurt or maimed,
That wheresoever you go I too shall be
Twas an immeasurable giant's, who
And also made a breakfast of his own:
'A thousand times I've been about to say,
Stretched forth her arms to clasp her lord again:
'Who knocks here?' grumbling all the while, said he.
Since that to carry me he was so slack--
Too greatly feared, at first, to be compliant.
Twere best to carry him into some wood,
Over which I crossed with two and sixty counts.
And having said thus much, he went his way;
I know not, but they are all of savage stuff;
And to the fountain's brink precisely pours;
And, if you please, by you may be adored.
'When hither to inhabit first we came
Perhaps thou deemest this lad a Mars in heart?
'The third, Morgante's savagest by far; he
Where wiaed them the abbot in great doubt.
See how Aurora shines and shadows vanish;
As Mercury, gifted by the magic wand,
As quick as thought he wore Diana's mask.
Then from his bleeding body Pentheus cried,
While through the streets one felt the earthquake stir
into the lifeless earth, but who are we
Saying if he did not find her, exile
Instructions not to look into her secret!
Thrust down by heaven's bolt crashed over Ossa.
And his bride were left to praise the fortunate
Were cause of all the grief upon his head.
Had claimed you then I would have followed after;
O had I father's gift, I would breath life
The latest of new creatures was the serpent,
Thrust down by heaven's bolt crashed over Ossa.
Spurting across the mountain, outstepped time;
Spoke for them; their speech was in the gesture
And midway through the feast called for another.
Mounting Ida
So was their sanctuary violated,
Love, children, happiness?"
And she exclaimed.
Stood for her cause, and flung defiance down
Nothing but this; my very ears were hot
He always made a point to post with mares;
An awful voice within had warned him thence;
From over her arched brows, with every turn
Descending:  once or twice she let her hand,
Deep as first love, and wild with all regret;
But Ida stood nor spoke, drained of her force
'Now lies the earth all Danae to the stars
And call her hard and cold, which seemed a truth;
Though, Madam, you should answer, we would ask--
The casement slowly grows a glimmering square;
'Tears, idle tears, I know no what they mean,
Shall a man's faith say what it is?  Or a man's guess deem?
Nor satiated ever with song till her last be sung,
Each pulse that awakens my blood into rapture fades,
But the might of the noon, though the light of it pass away,
Were given to the charge of thy keeping; and soundless panic
Which now dares deem not that light is as darkness, fain
Whose flame-lit odor satiates the flowers; mine eyes
More pure than moonbeams--yea, but the rays run sheer
And hate the holy darkness on glade and glen.
The skies that scorn us are less in thy sight than we,
With love as with pain; and the wide wood's motionless breast
Cleave, as discharged from the string of God's bow, tense
As man for woman, as woman for man?  Full soon,
Yet may not it say, though it seek thee and think to find
Close; and the goal of delight and of life is one:
New Life
Here begins The New Life
But of his own great heart,
Pleases, recommending its course to the arms of Fortune.
But trusting in him, who yet was leading his friend to
The New Life
This sonnet is so esy to understand, from what is
'Tis Nature makes them when she loves:  a king
The New Life
At fiest, with brief or longer slumbering.
My inmost being then feels thoroughly quit
'Names are the consequents of things.'
And made yet clearer; but this division may pass, and
With that, my soul woke up from its eclipse,
The New Life
Which determined me that I would say nothing further
The New Life
And mourns, may it please you (for his heart's relief)
The New Life
Your saints crying aloud continually."
When in my anguish you have looked on me;
Difficulty it is impossible for any to solve who is not in
Wherein, having pleaded my excuse, I should tell her
When yielding salutaion by the way,
Grief."  And I said also:  "If I could speak with them
They who wrote poems of love wrote not in the vulgar
Concerning this I have two parts.  First, I tell the cause why she
And you shall hear a bitter scorn of all
Then I departed, having made my moan;
Their cruel swords they quickly drew,
A chance in fairy that befell,
But finding still the coast was clear,
Of which they have the keeping.
Of one of his own fairy crew,
When by Tom Thumb, a fairy page,
But she has made it in her way,
Of these affairs so weighty.
For she does only mind him;
How fair he sat, how sure he rid,
With Oberon yet madding;
A chance in fairy that befell,
That understands things by the half
Of fair Queen Mab, which day and night
A stump does trip him in his pace,
Some token to Queen Mab to send.
When soon away the wasp does go;
And in what arms he was arrayed,
His service took too good effect,
Too well, he feared, his queen that knew,
Of fair Queen Mab, which day and night
Of them so called the fairy ground,
Among the briars and brambles.
That he arrived at the last,
Of which they have the keeping.
Do publicly proclaim him:
And lying down, they soundly slept,
I think the devil guided me
Oak of Olney
Oh!  May I live exempted (while I live
Compared with the repose the sofa yields.
That life holds out to all, should most abound
To slumber in the carriage more secure,
Of thorny boughs; have loved the rural walk
Ponderous, and fixed by its own massy weight.
And still remember, nor without regret,
A tooth or auburn lock, and by degrees
Is Nature's dictate, strange there should be found
Nor his who quits the box at midnight hour
Thus first necessity invented stools,
By soft recumbency of outstretched limbs,
Time was, when clothing sumptuous or for use,
Hard fare!  But such as boyish appetite
He seeks them headlong, and is seen no more.
The occasion--for the fair commands the song.
And skirted thick with intertexture firm
Or velvet soft, or plush with shaggy pile:
Nor sofa then I needed.  Youth repairs
The chase for sustenance, precarious trust!
While admiration feeding at the eye,
Compared with the repose the sofa yields.
Their length and color from the locks they spare.
And not a year but pilfers as he goes
Hard fare!  But such a boyish appetite
Of libertine excess, the sofa suits
Ocean has caught the frenzy, and upwrought
And then skip down again; pronounce a text,
And stand exposed by common peccancy
Which winds and waves obey, invades the shore
More distant, and that prophecy demands
He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Where beauty oft and lettered worth consume
Conspire against him, with his breath he draws
Was to encourage goodness, he would stroke
And roofs embattled high, the gloomy scenes
Fires from beneath, and meteors from above,
Upridged so high, and sent on such a charge,
Like kindred drops been mingled into one.
He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Such evil sin has wrought; and such a flame
My man of morals, nurtured in the shades
Of brotherhood is severed as the flax
Not colored like his own, and having power
On God's behalf, lays waste his fairest works.
Explains all mysteries, except her own,
And then skip down again; pronounce a text,
Pours she not all her choicest fruits abroad,
And drown him in her dry and dusty gulfs.
By infidelity and love of the world,
The voice of singing and the sprightly chord
Ocean has caught the frenzy, and upwrought
To adorn the sofa with eulogium due,
And winds his way with pleasure and with ease;
Been hurt by the archers.  In his side he bore,
Domestidc life in rural leisure passed!
He shuts it close, and the first labor ends.
Since then, with few associates, in remote
A senseless bargain.  When I see such games
And cherries hangs her twigs.  Geranium boasts
Is ofttimes proof of wisdom, when the fault
And find the total of their hopes and fears
In which obscurity has wrapped them up,
And winds his way with pleasure and with ease;
And pregnant with discoveries new and rare.
When he shall call his debtors to account.
And thus gives virtue indirect applause;
There was I found by one who had himself
Than to release the adultress from her bond.
And silent woods I wander, far from those
To adorn the sofa with eulogium due,
Some write a narrative of wars, and feats
To tell its slumbers and to paint its dreams,
Each in his own delusions; they are lost
Men too were nice in honor in those days,
Which, save himself who trains them, none can feel:
And winds his way with pleasure and with ease;
To adorn the sofa with eulogium due,
Hear the faint echo of those brazen throats,
Hark! 'Tis the twanging horn!  Over yonder bridge,
And spreads the honey of his deep research
He sucks intelligence in every clime,
Her elbows ruffled, and her tottering form
Observed as prodigies, and soon reclaimed.
It seems the part of wisdom, and no sin
To palliate dulness, and give time a shove.
And having dropped the expected bag--pass on.
And gathering, at short notice, in one group
Begs a propitious ear for his poor thoughts,
Cold and yet cheerful:  messenger of grief
He whistles as he goes, light-hearted wretch,
And sigh, but never tremble at the sound.
But urged by storms along its slippery way;
While fancy, like the finger of a clock,
On the same cushion of habitual sloth.
Suits well the thouful or unthinking mind,
Pay contribution to the store he gleans;
Down to the rosy west; but kindly still
Descending, and, with never-ceasing lapse,
With all its generations; I behold
The family dispersed, and fixing thought,
Sermons and city feasts, and favorite airs,
He whistles as he goes, light-hearted wretch,
And having dropped the expected bag--pass on.
He severs it away:  no needless care
Imperial mistress of the fur-clad Russ!
All hearts to sadness, and none more than mine;
Thus nature works as if to mock at art,
To those who, posted at the shrine of truth,
To bear this burdens; drawing in his gears
To escape the impending famine, often scared
That I myself am but a fleeting shade,
Imperial mistress of the fur-clad Russ!
But now and then with pressure of his thumb
Shoot into pillars of pellucid length,
From every herb and every spiry blade
Not so, where scornful of a check it leaps
The long-protracted rigor of the year
That trickle down the branches, fast congealed,
Beneath the dazzling deluge; and the bents
The growing wonder takes a thousand shapes
That I myself am but a fleeting shade,
That I myself am but a fleeting shade,
That I myself am but a fleeting shade,
Mine, spindling into longitude immense
That in its fall the liquid sheet throws wide.
Through the imperceptible meandering veins
Where memory slept.  Wherever I have heard
Roved far, and gathered much:  some harsh, 'tis true,
the night was winter in his roughest mood,
But all is in his hand whose praise I seek.
Then stops and snorts, and throwing high his heels,
The grand transition, that there lives and works
While sloth seduces more, too weak to bear
These, and a thousand images of bliss,
Whose outspread branches overarch the glade.
And lanes in which the primrose ere here time
His influence, if that influence all be spent
Charms more than silence.  Meditation here
Roved far, and gathered much:  some harsh, 'tis true,
To steel their hearts against the dread of death."
And worships.  Her report has travelled forth
With easy force it opens all the cells
The state beneath the shadow of whose vine
So man, the moth, is not afraid, it seems,
And worships.  Her report has travelled forth
The playful humor; he could now endure
An agency divine, to make him know
He has outslept the winter, ventures forth
Would urge a wiser suit than asking more.
Object Most Sublime
What is a state?  The wise behold in her
And ye, beliefs!  Coiled serpent-like about
Copying with awe the one paternal mind.
In act, as hovering angels when they spread
How shall your ancient warnings work for good
For one who speaks in numbers; ampler scope
Far oftener than, bad ushering worse event,
Softens his heart, till from his eyes outwell
And guidance have I sought in duteous love
His mandates, given rash impulse to control
They know the dread requital's source profound;
A laxity that could not but impair
A voice--that world whose veil no hand can lift
Afforded (May it through all time afford)
Thousands, as toward yon old Lancastrian towers,
On proud temptations, till the victim groaned
He rested not; its depths his mind explored,
And being, to preclude or quell the strife
Their first look--blinded as tears fell in showers
The sentence rule by mercy's heaven-born lights."
Iron that bound
Man, equal and one with me, man that is made of me, man that is I.
Praying prayers to the god of their fashion,
 she stirs not for all that have prayed.
My spirit elate;
With hands uncreate,
Canst thou say in thine heart
And smell of their shoots
My own blood is what stanches
Lo, winged with worlds's wonders,
I have need not of prayer;
Dim changes of water,
 what thing of all these hast thou known of or found?
God changes, and man, and the form of them bodily; I am the soul.
What is here, dost thou know it?
With the fires of his thunders
With hands uncreate
All sounds of all changes
That take and that give,
And the breath in the kiss.
Souls overcast
In the buds of your lives is the sap of my leaves;
 Ye shall live and not die.
Dim changes of water,
 what thing of all these hst thou known of or found?
I am equal and whole;
The war-wind that rages,
On the world's mountain ranges
Man, equal and one with me, man that is made of me, man that is I.
Open Fly
 Nature doth call
 Lest he should fling
Whom yet thy whorl wins did not clasp
 I saw a pettish wasp
 I saw a pettish wasp
 And wove to nets,
 Should greatly fret
 I saw a pettish wasp
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
 For why?
 For why?
 Lest he should fling
 Fall foul therein:
 Fall foul therein:
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
 Hells spider gets
 And state.
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
 And thankfully.
 Fall foul therein
This frey seems thus to us:
 And state.
Thou by the throat took'st hastily,
His entrails spun to whip cords thus,
 I saw a pettish wasp
And with thy little fingers stroke
 Fall foul therein:
 When perched on high
 For why?
 For why?
 Should greatly fret
 I saw a pettish wasp
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
 Caught by its leg,
 For why?
 And thankfully,
 Fall foul therein:
 Lest he should fling
 Hells spider gets
 Fall foul therein:
 But as afraid, remote
 I saw a pettish wasp
Whom yet thy whorl pins did not clasp
 Lest he should fling
 Whereas the silly fly,
 I saw a pettish wasp
Thus gently him didst treat
 To catch a fly?
 For why?
Our War
(Where our dead and dying lay
With hands too busy for thier lips they deal their volleys out.
"Ah, God be thankes!  Our friends are nigh;
"And God bore me, now let me rest;"
But why does a sudden tremor seize on them while they gaze?
Trenchard's hurt, our flag in ribbons, and the lunging boat set through
Near, nearer still.  The haughty fleet glides silent as the grave,
Our feet were gashed and bare,
The oldest craft on the line--
While the steam hums;
The floodtide of fraternal strife rolled upward to his feet,
Ninety men against two thousand, and ninety won the fight
Did he compass his purpose?...The hero!  One name
And I on the opposite shore will be,
From wastes of rock he brings
The cold whip-adder unespied
And favoring virgin freshness yet.
--Yes for a time they held as well
And have your fill of meat;
It is the forged feature finds me; it is the rehearsal
And where the brow in first descending bowed
So it is with my friends, I note, to hear
I can hear the harshness
Through him, melt him but master him still:
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Disappointment all I endeavor rend?
Crushed.  Why do men now not reck his rod?
Had been more fertile and had sown with notes
Vacant creation's lamps apral.
O in turns of tempest, me heaped there; me frantic to avoid thee and flee?
Which praying fails to do away.
The window-circles, these my all be sought
Paradise Recycled
And did the countenance divine,
The eternal great humanity divine, planted his paradise,
Mark well my words, they are of your eternal salvation!
With all colors of precious stones, and their inmost palaces
Bring me my spear:  O clouds unfold!
Thus they sing creating the three classes among druid rocks
From Golgonooza the spiritual four-fold London eternal
Raged with thick flames redundant, and the Harrow maddened with fury.
The servants of the mills drunken with wine and dancing wild
Among these dark Satanic mills?
His spectre raging furious descended into its space
Elynittria!  Whence is this jealousy running among the mountains
Upon the Thames shose lulling harmony reposed her soul:
O divine vision who did create the female:  to repose
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand:
Glorying to involve Albion's body in fires of eternal war--
To whom be glory and power and dominion evermore Amen
Precipitant loud thundering into the sea of time and space
To annihilate the self-hood of deceit and false forgiveness
I will not cease from mental fight,
He saw the cruelties of Ulro, and he wrote them down
Over the deeps outstretching her twenty-seven heavens over Albion
And he also darkened his brows:  freezing dark rocks between
Two yet but one:  each in the other sweet reflected!  These
Bring me my chariot of fire!
The dictate!  Watch over this world, and with your brooding wings,
While Los heard indistinct in fear, what time I bound my sandals
Till Albion is arisen; then patient wait a little while,
Because of Satan:  and the seven eyes of God continually
And was the holy lamb of God,
So Los spoke.  But lightnings of discontent broke on all sides round
So they are born on Earth, and every class is determinate
And science is divided into Bowlahoola and Allamanda.
And every seven ages is incircled with a flaming fire.\
In England's green and pleasant land.
In the vale of Surrey where Horeb terminates in Rephaim
To the inhabitants of Eden, around them on all sides.
A shadow to repose in all the days of happy eternity
And lays down in the grave with them, in visions of eternity
Bring me my bow of burning gold:
She shall relent in fear of death:  she shal begin to give
Here rendered deadly within the life and interior vision
It is the enterance of the first heaven named Luther:  for
In the east gate of Golgonooza, and the twenty-eighth bright
Among these dark Satanic mills?
The heavens are the cherub, the twelve gods are Satan
The heads of the great polypus, four-fold twelve enormity
Burned terrible!  My path became a solid fire, as bright
And awful man I see, overcovered wtih the mantle of years.
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
That it no longer shal dare to mock with the aspersion of madness
Rintrah and Palamabron view the human harvest beneath
To go forth to the great harvest and vintage of the nations
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Into a dark tempestuous sea of cloud
So that the peasant at his brother's bed
But you first guided me through doubt and fear,
The value of my labors ascertained,
Into immeasurable shade.  No, No:
To crown my mortal forehead with a beam
To judge by any good their prayers effect.
That once the tide of light, about to break
Forgiving love as shall embalm it there!
Well pleased was I their state should thus at once
To teach them, not amaze them  "To impart
That they reject the weak, and scorn the false.
Spent and decided, wasted past retrieve
Though the niggard pasturage
What he pours forth.  Dear Aureole, do but look!
Rather than praise the strong and true, in me:
"My law.  Men must not know their strength:  behold
And make each joy conceded prove a pledge
'Tis for their good, and therefore fit awhile
Those various natures whom you sway as one!
Peabody Orchestra
To linger in the sacred dark and green
But all that comes from the throne?
Of bill for coin and box for bale?
And marsh-plants, thirsty-cupped for rains,
And base it deep as devils grope:
That fly from tree-trunks and bark-rings;
There's plenty that can, if you can't:  we know.
Of true love's least, least ecstacy?"
Yea, nature, singing sweet and lone,
As if a petal from a wild-rose blown
Hush, fellow-swine:  why nuzzle and cry?
Of bill for coin and box for bale?
As here I lie,
Breathes through life's strident polyphone
The nymphs, cold creatures of man's colder brain,
Of bill for coin and box for bale?
Breathes through life's strident polyphone
Motherly sobbing, not distinctlier heard
Of true love's least, least ecstacy?"
Above men's oft-unheeding heads,
And the kilns and the curt-tongued mills say go!
To finer and diviner ends
Since Pembroke's life, as Pembroke's blade,
When all's done, what have you won
Pistils, and petals crystalline;
Peace and War
Huntsman, rest!  Your chase is done,
Faith beholds a feeble light
Shall England come to shame,
To hear my mournful story, in the pleasant vineyard ground,
And cruel slaughter made,
In happy hour,--
Up the streets of Aberdeen,
"Were slain in the great victory."
Not in vain, confessor old,
And I know that, when our courtiers
I look on the beauty round me,
Clinging closely to each other, striving never to look round
Then with slow and weary labor a small grave they hollowed out
Comes shuddering on the blast, or the faint moan
And the sentinel stars set their watch in the sky;
All night long the stars in heaven over the slain sad vigils kept.
Said little Wilhelmine.
And guessed some infant hand had placed it there,
And the night sky red with flames,
Loosely swung in the idle air,
Then, like a fool, confused, sat down again,
Nor now to prove our chance
Which he neglects the while,
Tell her the last night of my life (for, ere the moon be risen
And upon that field of carnage still the dead unburied lay.
For their mother--may heaven defend her!

O son, when will you learn of those that are born of despair,
Realization of socialism is now pressing on us.  I think that

Face to face:  the struggle between the classes therefore is
Of the life that they live there, so haggard and grim,

He shivers through the night.
And on the vexing portrait
"I climb upon their backs, and ride,
"If I could set the moon upon
The urchins of the sky.
Whose song the fays hold dear.
In our harsh village of the West.
And trembles morning, noon and night.
The blue-haze vast, complete.
In various ways aforetime
They eat her gray and golden face.

The moon's a brass-hooped water-keg.
The evening crowd was clamoring and drinking,
Upon her breast her hands and hair
The moon's a snowball.  See the drifts
Rest Before Labor
First trades & commerce ships & armed vessels he built laborious
Stern Urizen beheld urged by necessity to keep
Whence is the voice of Enion that sounds in my porches
On a broad wave in the warm west, balming her bleeding wound
Or will you answer youngest woman clad in shining green
Joy thrilled through all the furious form of Tharmas humanizing
Beyond this universal confusion beynd the remotest pole
Still hating, still professing love, still laboring in the smoke,
He turned from side to side in tears he wept & he embraced
The king of light beheld her mourning among the brick kilns compelled
The virtues of the eternal worlds ten thousand thousand spirits
If you repent not & leave you as a rotten branch to be burned
I alone dare the lash abide to sit beneath the blast
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
But Urizen awoke & Luvah woke & thus conferred
The mountains of Urizen once of silver where the sons of wisdom dwelt
Drinking the joys of universal manhood.  One dread morn
On all the sons of men & every human soul terrified
The tyger in redounding smoke the serpent of the woods
O torment O torment.  A worm compelled.  Am I a worm
I see, invisible descent into the gardens of Vala
And pitying comfort as she sighed forth on the wind the spectres
The joy of woman is the death of her best beloved
Rattling with clanking chains the universal empire groans
Your pity is from the foundation of the world & your redemption
You rise in the dew of morning & at night are folded up
Or else consume their shadowy semblance yet they obstinate
But against principalities, against powers,
And now we know that whatsoever you will ask of God
For from the hand of Urizen the myriads fall like stars
For whether they looked upward they saw the divine vision
Some became seed of every plant that shall be planted; some
Who sit mocking upon the little pebbles of the tide
Siezing upon his feet & rending the sinewss that in caves
Because the lamb of God creates himself a bride & wife
Rattling the adamantine chains & hooks heave up the ore
Unless some way can be found that I may look upon you & live
Will you now smile among the slain when the wounded groan in the field
While the flail of Urizen sounded loud & the winnowing wind of Tharmas
To bear this self conviction take then eat you also of
Then Enion & Ahania & Vala & the wife of dark Urthona
Against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
When I was a ravening hungering & thirsting cruel lust & murder
What you forget.  They in us & we in them alternate lived
So shall the spongy marrow issuing from your splintered bones
Take you the seven diseases of man store them for times to come
Drink in the deadly dull delusion horrors of eternal death
Him far into the world of Tharmas into a caverned rock
Into the temple of Urizen to give light to the abyss
I will arise explore these dews & find that deep pulsation
Each dome opended toward four halls & the three domes emcompassed
And here I see thee house remain in my most pleasant world
I walk by the footsteps of his flocks come hither tender flocks
Still dies for Enitharmon nor a spirit springs from my dead corpse
The gold & silver & costly stones his holy workmanship
Against spiritual wickedness in high places.
But clouds of human souls.  My nostrils drink the lives of men
Depends alone upon the universal hand & not in us
They stood above the heavens forsaken desolate suspended in blood
Begin with Tharmas parent power, darkening in the west
Brought up the loaded wagons with shoutings ramping tigers play
B ut when Luvah in Orc became a serpent he descended into
Where nothing lives, there to wander & if you return weary
Wailing runs round the valleys from the mill & from the barn
I sit in the place of shells & mourn & you are closed in clouds
Is it not possible that one risen again from death
The tyger in redounding smoke the serpent of the woods
And Luvah strove to gain dominion over the mighty Albion
Contracted they behold the secrets of the infinite mountains

He leaned with all his weight of fourscore years
But say you Abraham hath waxen old?
And Israel, too, his silver tongue once heard,
Resistless--the conquerer Death!
Welcome was given, his camels were ungirt,
The god more ancient than the lights of heaven,
The child of promise wore his sonship well.

And set the fare before the aged man.
This virgin as fit mate for Abraham's son.

What direful woes the hapless man attend,
Bonds, bills and mortgages, his favorite books,
Talk of the dangers of the stormy seas;
Merchants his yeomen, and his bondsmen Jews;
As arrant dunces have been known to sit
What vast results from trivial causes spring;
Hearts such as these may play the queerest pranks,
Baron of Germany, or a royal Dane,
And swings his arms to emphasize a plea
A broad distinction, brilliant, and my own:
Rewards the lawyer for his venal plea;
To worthiest objects points the givers's sight;
Pays to the priest his stinted annual fee;
A well-stored pantry and a tidy maid,
May fairly blow the torch of Hymen out;
As landsmen, sitting in luxurious ease,
The Turk submissive to his royal might,
Some days for pleasure, and an hour to spend
Or spends more treasure than a mint affords;
From mine to mint, curst is the coin that parts
Ringinging Out
The year is dying in the night;
To that vague fear implied in death,
Sphere all your lights around, above.
A life in civic action warm,
Our father's dust is left alone
Which makes me sad I know not why,
Wild hours that fly with hope and fear,
Nor branding summer suns avail
The spirit does but mean the breath:
Old new, which graspest at the stones
But half my life I leave behind.
Or sadness in the summer moons?
A deeper voice across the storm,
They might not seem thy prophecies,
And which, though veiled, was known to me,
Nor cared the serpent at thy side
And saying, 'Comes he thus, my friend?"
Nor branding summer suns avail
And flash at once, my friend, to thee!

By the youths that died for love
Now with furies surrounded
To bright cecilia greater power is given;
Let the warbling lute complain:
To the pale nations of the dead,
Yet even in death Eurydice he sung,
Eurydice the floods,
Descend from Pelion to the main.
Warriors she fires with animated sounds;
And make despair and madness please:
Till the roofs all around
Of Orpheus now no more let poets tell,
And giddy factions hear away their rage.
Ah see, he dies!
Till the roofs all around
This the divine Cecilia found,
The shrill echoes rebound:
While in more lengthened notes and slow,
And calls her ghost,
To arms, to arms, to arms!
Gently speak upon the ear;
And make despair and madness please:
What sounds were heard,
Wake into voice each silent string,
Eurydice the floods,
Dismal screams,
Hark!  The numbers soft and clear,
While in more lengthened notes and slow,
Gently steal upon the ear;
Now under hanging mountains,
By the youths that died for love,

Such the dire calm that glooms Carribean shores
Do thoughts like those which little minds debase,
The serpent floods of venom pours
Her voice, the groan of war, the shriek of woe
This courge of Scandia's realms, this pest of war;
By the potent runic rhyme,
Sublimed, by rival love, to fiercer fires.
Where mad Antonio heaves the headlong flood;--
Fenris bursts his iron chain;
She cessed;--in thunder vanishing from view,
And Upas fatal as the stroke of death:
From the ghastly feats of woe,
Nor even the aspen's restless foliage played;--
Overpowered the heavenly legions fall,
Whelm their pale numbers in the eternal shade;
The fiends, the cauldron, and the hags withdrew.
And nigh the wizard take their silent stand.

And brother blush with brother's gore:

Beside the ungathered rice he lay,
When upon the Red Sea coast
And all her hope and all her pride
Filled my soul with strange emotion;
She dwells by great Kenhawa's side,
Broke their dungeon-gates at night.
And struck him to the earth!
For she was rich, and gave up all
Her hands as icy cold.
On him alone the curse of Cain
Into the still bayou.
He did not feel the driver's whip,
Scare school-boys from their play!
And thus she walks among her girls
He took the glittering gold!
Odors of orange-flowers, and spice,
A worn-out fetter, that the soul
The feudal curse, whose whips and yokes
Perished Pharoah and his host.
Once more a king he strode;
Their wrists are cramped with gyves.
"Servant of God!  Well done!"
And a bloodhound's distant bay.

But the voice of nature was too weak;

With his goddam wicked eye.

Hooray and up she rises,
And unto me did say, "Take warning now by me,

Snake Eyes
Ever and aye, by shine and show,
Then the lady rose again,
The lady, who knelt at the old oak tree?
And may not well awakened be
How drowsily it crew.
She makes answer to the clock
And gladly oru stout chivalry
And the lady, whose voice was faint and sweet,
Some say, she sees my lady's shroud.
Where an army in battle array had marched out.
He would proclaim it far and wide,
Some say she sees my lady's shroud.
Took the key that fitted well;
Might prove her dear lord's joy and pride!
And they rode furiously behind.
And the spring comes slowly up this way.
Ever and aye, by shine and shower,
Stretch forth your hand (Thus ended she),
White with their panting palfreys' foam:
Nor do I know how long it is
Beautiful exceedingly!
Sixteen short howls, not overloud;
Then the lady rose again,
The hall as silent as the cell;
And comforted Geraldine:
Thus Bracy said:  The baron, the while,
Sixteen short howls, not over loud;
Ever and aye, by shine and shower,
Four for the quarters, and twelve for the hour;
Praise we the Virgin all divine
'Tis the middle of night by the castle clock,
And help a wretched maid to flee.
Close by the dove's its head it crouched;
Sixteen short howls, not overloud;
She rose:  and forth with steps they passed
And see!  The lady Christabel
Has a toothless mastiff bitch;
And gladly our stout chivalry
And tied me on a palfrey white,
And, by mine honor!  I will say,
All in the middle of the gate;
And did bring her home with you in love and in charity,
All our household are at rest,
From her kennel beneath the rock
Will he send forth and friends withal
Some say, she sees my lady's shroud.
And may not well wakened be,
But Christabel in dizzy trance
Gathers herself from out her trance;
All in the middle of the gate;
I may dislodge their reptile souls
That strove to be, and were not, fast.
And would you wrong your only child,
Has a toothless mastiff bitch;
Some say, she sees my lady's shroud.
Out of the multitude of things,
A fire of flowers and glowing grass;
Things good and evil have one end.
The dust of many strange desires
Whatch the same field and skies as we
This year, Felise?
This year knows nothing of last year:
But, sweet, for me no more with you:
Though love do all that love can do,
Too strong to die, too weak to reach
Alive, or later, when you die,
Goodnight, good-bye.
Impossible willows; the wide-throated hearth
His portly presence, mad for food,
Wrought puzzles out, and riddles told,
Shone at its full; the hill-range stood
What splendors fall on Syrian sands,
Was clay in slavery's shaping hand,
Beloved in every Quaker home,
From brook and bird and meadow flowers
Her daily life is preaching;
To hear the doom-blast of the trumpet shatter
Weaving through all the poor details
The little world of sights and sounds
From painful Sewel's ancient tome,
At midnight on Cochecho town,
That watch our homesteads over;
The moorland flower and peasant!
The common features magnified,
The jarring words of one whose rhyme
Like Peter's angel at the gates,
From the red scourge of bondage fly
Of life-blood in the sharpened face
Where, through clouds, are glimpses given
Sorites:  Our Lady of Risk--A Bloody Pulp in D Major
A thunder of lyres.
Thou shalt hush him with heavy caresses,
O fierce and luxurious Dolores,
Red mouth like a venomous flower;
Fresh heads for his arrows and thine;
Cold eyelids that hide like a jewel
And satiate with comfortless hours
Sin's child by incestuous death?
And they hailed thee re-risen, O Thalassian
And vine-leaves with Bacchus he trod;
What shall rest of thee then, what remain,
O fierce and luxurious Delores,
For the raptures and roses of vice;
And all came in sight?
Let it brighten and bloat and grow duller
Of gods that were goodly and glad
Is more than the wisdom of years,
These crown and caress thee and chain,
O mystic and somber Dolores
These crown and caress thee and chain,
Weak sins yet alive are as virtue
Most fruitful and virginal, holy,
The desire of thy furious embraces
But sweet as the rind was the core is;
For dried is the blood of thy lover,
Our lady of pain.

Back to the shoulder with its fleece

Your naked new-born soul, their stake,
With state of splendid hair that droops

You have the face that suits a woman

Sorrow and Adversity
How sadly, I remember, rose the morning of the year!
His body dwindled and awry
But Effie, you must comfort her when I am past away.
Houseless by night.
What are the blessings of the sight,
What though on homely fare we dine,
At which his heart rejoices;
Of distant dim primroses.
But she struck one little match on the wall so cold and bare,
Till the eyes are heavy and dim!
And all the poor and hungry and forsaken ones are his,--
And in the wild March-morning, I heard them call my soul.
"It was a bitter, bitter night!  The child is frozen dead."
Ah, sure my looks must pity wake,--
Your steps to guide your hearts to cheer."
Lift her with care!
Should fall on a sinner with nowhere to go!
Wipe those poor lips of hers,
It is a storm where the hot blood
And you'll come sometimes and see me where I am lowly laid.
Stay wherever you will.
Then shrinks into that fatal mould
Just as the setting sun's last ray
His body dwindled and awry
And blessings on his whole life long, until he meet me there!
I could look on it forever.

Spots of Mind
I.  Introduction:  Childhood and School-time
'Twas autumn, and a calm and placid day
Fell audibly.  And with a startling sound.
O there is blessing in the gentle breeze,
I settle on some British theme, some old
As to myself pertained.  I made a choice
To add meanwhile assurance of some work
Flying, found shelter in the Fortunate Isles,
Above the cavern of the willow-tree,
From paramount impulse not to be withstood;
A farewell to the city left behind,
Whereat, being not unwilling now to give
Meanwhile, the precipices rang aloud;
Beneath a tree, slackening my thoughts by choice
From some hill-top on sunny afternoons
Thoughtfully fitted to the Orphean lyre;
Of childhood didst thou intertwine for me
Fell audibly, and with a startling sound.
Of glory there forthwith to be begun--
With silver clouds and sunshine on the grass,
And the whole beauteous fabric seems to lack
In one society.  Ah me, that all
Still hurrying, hurrying onward.  Moon and stars
As at the touch of lightning, seeking him
Two hours declined towards the west, a day
The heart is almost mine with which I felt
Internal echo of the imperfect sound--
Of curling mist, or from the level plain
Perhaps too there performed.  Thus long I lay
Discordant elements, and makes them move
II.  School-time (continued)
Blessed the infant babe--
Among the leaves were stirring, and the sun,
When all the ground was dark and the huge clouds
Sublimer joy, for I would walk alone
For calmer pleasures--when the beauteous forms
Among the leaves were stirring, and the sun,
With giddy motion, but the time approached
Returned from the half-yearly halidays,
Most audible then when the fleshly ear,
With lilies-of-the-valley like a field,
We ran a boisterous race, the year span round
Returned from the half-yearly holiday,
A hermit's history.  In such a race,
Society made sweet as solitude
In storm and tempest, or in starlight nights
That ancient woman, and her board, supplied.
And what my waking thoughts, supplied to nurse
We rested in the shade, all pleased alike,
Hence rustic dinners on the cool green ground--
In pennyless poverty.  But now, to school
And human knowledge, to the human eye
Thus daily were my sympathies enlarged,
of vigorous hunger, for our daily meals
And yet the building stood, as if sustained
And to my friend who knows me I may add,
Nor is my aim neglected if I tell
To beat along the plain of Windermere
We came with purses more profusely filled,
aIt was the pastime of our afternoons
An old stone table and a mouldered cave--
In conversation betwixt man and man
III.  Residence at Cambridge
To gallop through the coury in blind zeal
Wishing to hope without a hope--some fears
And what may rather have been called to life
From personal and family regards,
Some friends I had--acquaintances who there
And faculties, whether to work or feel:
With undisordered sight.  But leaving this,
Beneath the pealing organ.  Empty thoughts,
If childlike fruitfulness in passing joy,
About my future worldly maintenance,
Collateral suspicion, else unknown.
And the first dazzle of the taper-light,
Which time, and place, and season do impress
By after-meditation.  But delight,
And poor misguided shame, and witless fear,
Why should I grieve?--I was a chosen son.
Unknown, unthought of, yet was almost rich,
And, more than all, a strangeness in my mind,
As if with a rebound my mind returned
Even the loose stones that cover the highway,
Some fair enticing island, did but know
Well understood, or naturally endeared,
To know that I was otherwise endowed.
I make short mention.  Things they were which then
Is smitten thence with an unnatural taint,
Upon the matron temples of a place
In this recess which I have bodied forth
No longer haunting the dark winter night.
IV.  Summer Vacation
Like a sick lover, then his dog was used
By birth and call of nature preordained
Old men and matrons, staid, promiscuous rout,
Perhaps than if it had been more desired,
A passenger approaching, would he turn
Though earnest--doubtless with a little pride,
At our domestic table; and, dear friend,
Had lain awake on breezy nights to watch
Remembering the importance of his theme
A satire on myself.  My aged dame
In comfort, I entreated that henceforth
That time can lay upon her, how on earth
Was as a volume to me; some I hailed
A pleasant sight it was when, having clomb
Was given, that I should be--else sinning greatly--
Like recognitions, but with some constraint
At sight of such an emblem that shewed forth
Was with me, at my side; she guided me,
Of poesy, affecting private shades
Which I had loved, even as a blessed spirit
Had watched her with fixed eyes, while to and fro
The boyish spirit flagged, and day by day
But now was come a change--it would demand
Among my schoolfellows I scattered round
But now there opened on me other thoughts,
Nor knapsack; in his very dress appeared
Returned my salutation, then resumed
Spirits upon the stretch, and here and there
Like a sick lover, then his dog was used
Than those which now we have been passing by.
V.  Books
Gently on infant minds as does the sun
A worshipper of worldly seemliness-
Rich with indigenous produce, open ground
Was Euclid's Elements.  'And this,' said he
The stranger,' said my friend continueing,
That self-same village church:  I see her sit--
'Stretched forth the shell towards me, with command
Too learned, or too good, but wanton, fresh,
Make green peninsulas one's Thwaite's Lake.
But so it is; and in that dubious hour,
it might have well beseemed me to repeat
Where it lies hidden in its endless home
Touches him not.  Briefly, the moral part
The honors of thy high endowments; there
Behold a race of young ones like to those
And Sabra in the forest with St. George!
'This other,' pointing to the shell, 'This book
And heard that instant in an unknown tongue,
While questioning himself what this strange freight
And their high privilege of lasting life
Was growing in him when, behold, at once
By the highways and hedges:  ballad-tunes,
My honored mother, she who was the heart
Destruction to the children of the earth
Or whatsoever else the heart holds dear--
Unheard by her, that she, not falsely taught,
Was sitting there in the wide wilderness
In childhood ere he was full ten years old.
VI.  Cambridge and the Alps
The trunk and master branches everywhere
moves through the air, or as a fish pursues
A different worship.  Finally, whatever
Up from the ground and almost to the top
And loveliness of imagery and thought.
The stationary blasts of waterfalls,
Of printed books and authorship, began
Midled as to these latter not alone
My choice, did I at nights frequent our goves
Though not familiarly, my mind put on;
Through hours of silence till the porter's bell,
Upon the bosom of the gentle soane
Day after day, up early and down late,
We took our way, direct through hamlets, towns,
And ruling business, happy is the strength
For utterandce, to think how small a change
Went back to Granta's cloisters--not so fond
Producing like effect from outward cause
But here I must break off, and quit at once,
My heart leaped up when first I did look down
Of modest sympathy, such aspect now,
The present, with us in the times to come.
The only one, who had been lingering there
What, and what kind they were, My inner knowledge
That hung in yellow tassels and festoons,
Upon the stretch when winds are blowing fair.
The trunk and master branches everywhere
A mansion not unvisited of old
The trunk and master branches everywhere
VII.  Residence in London
Summoned from school to London--fortunate
Nothing is listened to.  But these I fear
Face after face--the string of dazzling wares,
In twain, yet leaving the same outward shape.
Was one, a cripple from the birth, whom chance
The changeful language of their countenances
Of Westminster, the giants of Guildhall,
There was a time when whatsoever is feigned
Most delicate, a lurking eyelet, small
Inviting; with buffoons against buffoons
Have left behind them, foremost I am crossed
Upon his person, verily, though strange
Or given upon report by pilgrim friars
Together joined their multifarious aid
A minuet course, and, winding up his mouth
An under-sense of greatest, sees the parts
But on the mother's cheek the tints were false,
Of the world's greatness, winding round with train
Do I remember her; but I behold
Face to face--the string of dazzling wares,
All loosely put together, hobbled in
Are vomiting, receiving, on all sides,
After short absence, and I first set eyes
Yet richly graced with honors of its own--
The fame of which is scattered through the land,
Yet something of a girlish childlike gloss
VIII.  Retrospect:  Love of Nature Leading to Love of Mankind
Girt round with mists they stood, and looked about
But calm and mild, gentle and beautiful,
And watch their goings, whatsoever track
With prospect underneath of striding edge
Of an aerial island floating on,
Delicious, seeing that the sun and sky,
In our affectations.  I have singled out
Scene linked to scene, and ever-growing change,
With gleams of sunshine on the eyelet spots
had shed its bells, and stood by the wayside
To either brink, nor could he summon up
Girt round with mists they stood, and looked about
The elements, and seasons in their change,
At length I did unto myself first seem
I had may face towards the truth, began
To have some meaning which I could not find--
Beside the well-known charnel-house had then
Girt round with mists they stood, and looked about
On all sides from the ordinary world
Through the hard time, long as the storm is 'locked'
When but a half-hour's roam through such a place
Least understood--of this adulterate power,
Of nature and of man that this was so,
Of opposition, such as showed itself
Or Gehol's famous gardens, in a clime
To me was like an index of delight,
IX.  Residence in France
I hasten:  there, by novelties in speech,
Was busy with an action far advanced.
We summoned up the honorable deeds
Of self-respect, and virtue in the few
And glad--could living man be otherwise?--
Of kings, their vices and their better deeds,
Amused and satisfied, I scarcely felt
Of my associates were prepared for flight
Did Dion hold with Plato, ripened thus
Though not without some strong incumbencies,
Nor wanted such half-insight as grew wild
Draw from obscurity a tragic tale,
A single picture merely, hunted out
And how the multitude of men will feed
Pointed upon occasion to the site
The shock of these concussions, unconcerned,
Into a theater of which the stage
Or seemed so--yet it was not vanity,
Though not without some strong incumbencies,
Devoutly that a spirit was abroad
Of history, the past and that to come!
And from the rubbish gathered up a stone,
it wa Angelica thundering through the woods
Of all these various objects which may show
With him did I discourse about the end
(Save only one, hereafter to be named)
The beauty of his person, doing wrong
Of builders and subverters, every face
Yielding in part to old remembrances,
X.  Residence in France and French Revolution
From a small village where I tarried then,
Where Etna looks down on Syracuse
And only one, solicitude for all.
From every object pleasant circumstance
And hinted at in other sentiments,
And as it should be, yet no cure for those
With more success.  For me that strife had never
Of a false prophet.  But, roused up, I stuck
Yes, afterwards, truth painful to record,
Great was my glee of spirit, great my joy
But indignation works where hope is not,
Of wild belief engrafted on their names
On painful things--slow, somewhat, too, and stern
No longer justify themselves through faith
I saw that it was neither these nor aught
Pay fruitless worship to humanity,
Griefs bitterest of ourselves or of our kind,
That objects, even as they are great, thereby
And losing, in no other way than light
Of those atrocities (I speak bare truth,
Yet every thing was wanting that might give
For zeal to enter and refresh herself,
By ancient lawgivers.  In this frame of mind
Justice, and make an end of liberty.
XI.  Imagination, How Impaired and Restored
This history, my friend, has chiefly told
Although a strong infection of the age,
Of something false and weak, which could not stand
And plain beneath.  Ere I to school returned
Can aught be more ignoble than the man
Shall I avow that I had hope to see
Their sentence was, I thought, pronounced--their rights
Which with their passionate sounds might often make
Sensuous and intellectual as he is,
When, in the blessed time of early love,
In daily presence of this very scene,
And their disastrous issues.  What availed,
Of poets, pregnant with more absolute truth.
The choice uncertain.  There I repaired
Fell on the historian's page, and even on that
And shall perform, to exalt and to refine--
Until that natural graciousness of mind
Were limited.  I had not at that time
The life of Nature, by the God of Love
From all the sources of her former strength;
More perfectly of purer creatures--yet
More grand, more fair, more exquisitely framed,
Too forcibly, too early in my life,
For future restoration.  Yet another
(I mean that future times would surely see)
The open eye of reason.  Then I said,
Is scattered through the abyss of ages past,
Inevitable, sure alternative?
XII.  Same Subject (continued)
I called upon the darkness, and it took--
A silent station in this beauteous world.
Oh, next to such enjoyment of our youth,
If man's estate, by doom of nature yoked
For my instructor, studious more to see
Why may not many be?  What bars are thrown
Great truths, than touch and handle little ones.
Again I took the intellectual eye
Ambition, folly, madness, in the men
Of whom we read, the man whom we behold
The constellations), I was gently charmed,
Great truths, than touch and handle little ones.
An image, and a character, by books
Of man, no composition of the thought,
Was firmer in the feelings which had stood
With loftiest promises of good and fair.
For good in the familiar face of life,
Of kindred permanence, the gifts divine
My sense of what was excellent and right,
To watch and question those I met, and held
'Of these,' said I, 'shall be my song.  Of these
Why may not many be?  What bars are thrown
To ascertain how much of real worth,
Abstraction, shadow, image, but the man
To seek in man, and in the frame of life
In what we blazon with the pompous names
To ascertain how much of real worth,
That I have dared to tread this holy ground,
Suh meditations bred an anxious wish
A balance, and ennobling interchange
The promise of the present time retired
XIII.  Conclusion
Touching our very feet; and from the shore
Exhibited by putting forth, and that
That summer when on Quantock's grassy hills
The perfect image of a mighty mind,
Grand in itself alone, but in that breach
Usurped upon as far as sight could reach.
With all the objects of the universe:
All over this still ocean, and beyond,
Upon the lonely mountain when the scene
The feeling of life endless, the one thought
Made visible--a genuine counterpart
The perfect image of a mighty mindj,
Touching our very feet; and from the shore
Had passed away, and it appeared to me
Prophets of Nature, we to them wil speak
Familiar, and a favorite of the stars;
That domination which she oftentimes
The falsest of all worlds, in place of that
Calling upon the more instructed mind
The last and later protions of this gift
Of what was given me), and where now I roam,
Like transformation, for themselves create
That even the grossest minds must see and hear,
When looking back you see, in clearer view
Of individual character.  Herein
Exhibited by putting forth, and that
A like existence, and, whenever it is
Exerts upon the outward face of things,
Had passed away, and it appeared to me
Upon the lonely mountain when the scene
Mounted the roar of waters, torrents, streams
Steam Whistle
With more delecate surprise;
Slander me
Prophets coming after me,
Hear the leapard cry for gore,
With a steel-spring Roman grace,
Listen to the lion R-O-A-R!
Willy willy willy wah hoo!
Soul of the rhinoceros
Then a pleased spectator there,
Clowns shall tumble all about,
With a steel-spring Roman grace,
Happy in their plumes arrayed
Hear the leopard cry for gore,
Voicing planet, star and moon,
Tooting joy, tooting hope.
Nevermore the prison pen.
(Supposed) Delights
Can make day's forehead brightburnish of no sin,
Jewels but to declare
And, when it comes, say, "Welcome, friend!"
Eyes that displace
And can alone command the rest;
Made short by lover's play,
Tresses that wear
Tears, quickly fled
How much themselves more precious are;
Above all, nothing within that lowers;
Something more than
A lover's kiss may play,
From a fore-spent night of sorrow;
Tears, quickly fled
Eyes that bestow
Of shop, or silkworm's toil,
From a fore-spent night of sorrow;
Tresses that wear
Soft silken hours,
That sunshine by their own sweet grace;
And be you called my absent kisses.
Eyes that bestow
And clothe their simplest nakedness.
Art and ornament the shame.
Joys that confess
I wish her beauty
Out of no other shop
Blushes that bin
Or rampant feather, or rich fan;
A face that's best
Smiles that can warm
Of shop or silkworm's toil,
I wish her beauty
Out of no other shop
And be you called my absent kisses.
Temperance & Labor
Their days are spent whose minds are bent
Swing in your strokes in order, let foot and hand keep time
Nothing but dulness and lethargy, weariness, sorrow, and death!
Hence are seed and leaf and blossom.
See every cherished promise swept,
And children coming home from schoo,
The splendid raiment of the spring peeps forth;
Filth of the mouth and fog of the mind!
It flashes in the van of fight,--
Sweetly sleep!
This lesson sad to learn from woe,--
Labor is rest--from the sorrows that greet us;
Plant divine, of rarest virtue!
Round the shoulder of beauty fall.
We look up, and through black clouds riven
O praise him, all that dies, and lives.
He opens and he shuts his hand,
It gleams above the stormy tide,--
He earns whatever he can;
Or a fit expression find,
Home to rest!"
The poor man's labor's never done.
Would do it, and prove, through every disaster,
Strong on the wing his busy followers play,
We bless, we bless the plow.

And for his workings wonderfull
For his great goodnes then:
That made of yron was.
The waves thereof are still.
They that goe downe to the sea in ships:
Unto the sonnes of men.
Healing to them he gave:
They reele, and stagger, drunkard like,
The gates that were of brasse:
Downe they did fall, and none their was
Downe goe they to the depths againe,
Out of their anguishes.

To the haven which they did will.
Also in yron tyde:

O give ye thanks unto the lord,
For he hath all to shivers broke

Therefore with molestation

Also in yron tyde:
And for to be diminished
And for his workings wonderfull
O that men would Jehovah prayse

Save light-voiced winds that round your dwelling played,
Into your noon of life, when first earth heard
When they their parent's face had never known;
Than ever before on mortal eyelids fell;

Alone in nature's forest-home untrod,
And in your trust with childlike heart would share,
A murmer in the beating wave;
A lesson taught by him who loved all human kind.
