Forgetfulness

Written by: Hart Crane | Biography
 | Quotes (4) |
 Forgetfulness is like a song 
That, freed from beat and measure, wanders.
Forgetfulness is like a bird whose wings are reconciled, Outspread and motionless, -- A bird that coasts the wind unwearyingly.
Forgetfulness is rain at night, Or an old house in a forest, -- or a child.
Forgetfulness is white, -- white as a blasted tree, And it may stun the sybil into prophecy, Or bury the Gods.
I can remember much forgetfulness.
