The clock indicates the moment-but what does eternity indicate?
Man or woman, I might tell how I like you, but cannot, And might tell what it is in me and what it is in you, but cannot, And might tell that pining I have, that pulse of my nights and days.
The sharp-hoof'd moose of the north, the cat on the house-sill, the chickadee, the prairie-dog, The litter of the grunting sow as they tug at her teats, The brood of the turkey-hen and she with her half-spread wings, I see in them and myself the.This is the grass that grows wherever the land is and the water is, This the common air that bathes the globe.I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.One world is aware and by far the largest to me, and that is myself, And whether I come to my own to-day or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.(The moth and the fish-eggs are in their place, The bright suns I see and the dark suns I cannot see are in their place, The palpable is in its place and the impalpable is in its place.) 17 These are really the thoughts.Not a moment's vinn gratis penger 2013 cease, The leaks gain fast on the pumps, the fire eats toward the powder-magazine.The Yankee clipper is under her sky-sails, she cuts the sparkle and scud, My eyes settle the land, I bend at her prow or shout joyously from the deck.To cotton-field drudge or cleaner of privies I lean, On his right cheek I put the family kiss, And in my soul I swear I never will deny him.And proceed to fill my next fold of the future.Back to top DayPoems Poem.I am he that walks with the tender and growing night, I call to the earth casino spill zweibrucken and sea half-held by the night.
Will you prove already too late?
I am a free companion, I bivouac by invading watchfires, I turn the bridgroom out of bed and stay with the bride myself, I tighten her all night to my thighs and lips.
Unscrew the locks from the doors!
Old age superbly rising!
I remember now, I resume the overstaid fraction, The grave of rock multiplies what has been confided to it, or to any graves, Corpses rise, gashes heal, fastenings roll from.
Turn the bed-clothes toward the foot of the bed, Let the physician and the priest go home.
Apart from the pulling and hauling stands what I am, Stands amused, complacent, compassionating, idle, unitary, Looks down, is erect, or bends an arm on an impalpable certain rest, Looking with side-curved head curious what will come next, Both in and out of the game.Do you take it I would astonish?Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touch'd from, The scent of these arm-pits aroma finer than prayer, This head more than churches, bibles, and all the creeds.45 O span of youth!Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the door-slab.I lie in the night air in my red shirt, the pervading hush is for my sake, Painless after all I lie exhausted but not so unhappy, White and beautiful are the faces around me, the heads are bared of their fire-caps, The kneeling crowd.Easily written loose-finger'd chords-I feel the thrum of your climax and close.Whoever degrades another degrades me, And whatever is done or said returns at last.Your facts are useful, and yet they are not my dwelling, I but enter by them to an area of my dwelling.2, houses and rooms are full of perfumes, the shelves are crowded with perfumes, I breathe the fragrance myself and know it and like it, The distillation would intoxicate favoritt spilleautomater gratis nedlasting me also, but I shall not let.Press close bare-bosom'd night-press close magnetic nourishing night!I dilate you with tremendous breath, I buoy you up, Every room of the house do I fill with an arm'd force, Lovers of me, bafflers of graves.And to all generals that lost engagements, and all overcome heroes!(Only what proves itself to every man and woman is so, Only what nobody denies.) A minute and a drop of me settle my brain, I believe the soggy clods shall become lovers and lamps, And a compend of compends is the meat.
