I Loved...

Written by: Alan Seeger | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 I loved illustrious cities and the crowds 
That eddy through their incandescent nights. 
I loved remote horizons with far clouds 
Girdled, and fringed about with snowy heights. 
I loved fair women, their sweet, conscious ways 
Of wearing among hands that covet and plead 
The rose ablossom at the rainbow's base 
That bounds the world's desire and all its need. 
Nature I worshipped, whose fecundity 
Embraces every vision the most fair, 
Of perfect benediction. From a boy 
I gloated on existence. Earth to me 
Seemed all-sufficient and my sojourn there 
One trembling opportunity for joy.
