Ode to Love and Beauty

Having said what I said,

Having done what I did,

I will never keep my head

short of spirit or down with regret.

Alone in my agony, alone in

my dynasty, I will stand still

and dig and have things to hammer out.

Shall I stop? Shall I thus wait and weep?

I weep but not at this time

in this place when my words

have turned without sense

without platform to feel pride

and swing aimlessly like birds.

O brothers and sisters of shared

Love and Beauty, keep working

keep living keep soaring in silence.
