I think I have never been so exalted
As I am now by you,
O frost bitten blossoms,
That are unfolding your wings
From out the envious black branches.
Bloom quickly and make much of the sunshine
The twigs conspire against you
They hold you from behind
You shall not take wing
Except wing by wing, brokenly,
Shall not endure for ever.
by William Carlos (WCW) Williams
