Song of Jackie

Song of Jackie

  I tramp a perpetual journey, My signs are a rain-proof coat and good shoes and a staff cut from the woods; No friend of mine takes his ease in my chair, I have no chair, nor church nor philosophy; I lead no man to a dinner-table or library or exchange, But each man and each woman of you I lead upon […]

 

Song of Emily

Song of Emily

I know I am august, I do not trouble my spirit to vindicate itself or be understood, I see that the elementary laws never apologize, I reckon I behave no prouder than the level I plant my house by after all. I exist as I am, that is enough, If no other in the world […]

My rendezvous is appointed, it is certain, The Lord will be there and wait till I come on perfect terms, The great Camerado, the lover true for whom I pine will be          there. I know I have the best of time and space, and was never           measured and never will be measured.   I […]

Song of Jen

Song of Jen

  A few light kisses, a few embraces, a reaching around of arms, The play of shine and shade on the trees as the supple boughs wag, The delight alone or in the rush of the streets, or along the fields and hill-sides, The feeling of health, the full-noon trill, the song of me rising […]

Song of Chuck

I have heard what the talkers were talking….the talk of the beginning and the end, But I do not talk of the beginning or the end. There was never any more inception than there is now, Nor any more youth or age than there is now; And will never be any more perfection than there […]

Song Of Jayro

Song Of Jayro

I celebrate myself, and what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. Out of the dimness opposite equals advance ….Always substance and increase, Always a knit of identity …always distinction….always a breed of life. To elaborate is no avail…. Learned and unlearned feel that it is […]

Houses and rooms are full of perfumes . . . . the shelves Are crowded with perfumes (p. 27) The distillation would intoxicate me also, but I shall not let it. (p. 27) Unscrew the locks from the doors! Unscrew the doors themselves from their jambs! (p. 50) I believe in the flesh and the […]
