Mother Earth has taken thou which heaven giveth
I dare not repeat, retreat, seat, top or beneath
Hurricane charges, yet feather-light heavily troubled soul
Soleless, yet aloof stands
Oh Earth! Oh mother! Oh murder! Oh death!
Cold are thy feet
Hold mine wrist
Chide mine drift
Oh scold! Bark! Shout! Speak! Shake! Move! Mother!
Farther towards father, thee sail
Further from mine brother
Broader to lands...spade, an aid
Not delayed that mine rite be paid
