Chick

Chick was thought to be dead for about a year, So of course, when he entered, there was no cheer. On Gam’s pale face—fear, before he moved his hand, But Chick was much faster in his fierce command, And Gam, … Continue reading

He Is Time

Oh, somewhere songs of summer soar Where, oh, there’s not a flower more, And somewhere there’s a man who sings Of spreading buds and gushing springs. And while the winter gathers cold And grasps it tight within its hold, The … Continue reading

First Snow Dust

First snow-dust on golden hills; First cold blast with little chills; Young Winter sweeps a wing so light That ere it’s noon he’s out of sight. And then comes sun, and then comes night. The stars like many snow-drops gleam … Continue reading

Crow Dream

Crow of my dream, I’ll sing you fair, Caught in my dream, but happy there. Black as the night, with shiny beak, Flew you on down, but did not speak. Grim were you not, with eye so mild, Seeking my … Continue reading

When

When what you love you love with all your might; When all your might is all your self-taught height; When every thought is your own thought held true, And your deep fiery will burns strong in you; When you’ll not … Continue reading

When Tiny Stars

When tiny stars do dot the sky And red-eyed jets go blinking by, When autumn air is icey chill And rusty leaves are falling still, Then time is ours to stay outside And dance the dance of loving pride. A … Continue reading

I’m Glad, Dear Truth

Oh truth, dear truth, sincerely so I sought You with my open-gazing eyes and thought And yearning youth, and dearly so I caught The hardest edges of your shining words, And held them tight. They’re not like flutt’ring birds That … Continue reading

When In The Morning

When in the morning I do see your dark hair shine, And know that all night long that gleaming world was mine; When I remember how it fell upon my face And how it lay there as I lightly breathed … Continue reading

In Us Began

We entered in our night of sin With candles shaped like phalluses, And down their sides the wax did run As locked we up lust palaces. Our body true to one from two Was such a shrine of sex divine, … Continue reading

Fly!

Fly, fly, my friendly homeing words; Into her taking hands, up to her eyes, Fly, fly, and sing to her like birds That in the summer air do sweep the skies With hopefulness to lookers down below, And give my … Continue reading

Oh Highest E’s

Oh widest o’s, oh rising a’s, Oh highest e’s, you have my praise. Although no word around you grows, Your upward soaring seals my days, And I arise on wings of song That through her window wander strong, For she … Continue reading

Most glorious Reason, wonderment of man, Which builds upon the thunder of his mind The mighty monuments of eye and hand, Which leap the mountains, skip the salty seas, Soar upward through the clouds and cross the stars, And cast … Continue reading

The Good’s Begun

When Good has come, to say there’s no more good, And Vice leans smiling, eager to beguile, Hear nothing, but begin the thing you should And trash the wrong, like shoes gone out of style. In bare feet though you … Continue reading

If You Were The Glory of Day (Following a form by Swinburne)

If you were the glory of day And I was the triumph of night, We’d shadow and sunbeam slay To dance in a mist half bright. And the clouds all around us would roll, But never know storm in its … Continue reading

You Must Decide

Our flag has stripes of red and white, White stars, with background blue; If stars are thoughts held through the night, My friend, which star are you? Upon the batttled field of time The stripes are flowing fair. Be you … Continue reading

Blast Him Out!

Let revolution now again begin to be; Let men of principles assert the good and free; Let every man who knows his moral worth Make him a god of rights upon this earth. In reasoned thought, in rational action true, … Continue reading

Send Them Back!

Mere people’s representatives are you, But not of man, who this great land began, And swayed by false emotions, their brew Of daily thoughtlessness that has for friend The end of hours, and sees the means the end? You squeeze … Continue reading

A Goodly Spirit (Countering Michael Drayton’s “An Evil Spirit”)

A goodly spirit, your beauty stalks me still, And everywhere I glance I see your face. If I do try to run, you have your will, For though I’m fast, you lead me in the chase. I fall on grass, … Continue reading

True Statesmen, Stand!

Senators, who have no mind, they say, But disavow that men have any rights But those which “kind” officials send their way; Senators, whose readings are of polls, While disregarding books that ask them think, But drink approval from slant … Continue reading

What Is Breath?

I went from you, returned, and went again, But in my mind I stayed, to hold you tight. Then dawn so falsely lightened through my dream I saw you not as you, but vision bright. I placed you on a … Continue reading
