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.
