...e the same may tell.

Thereof as every earthly thing partakes
Or more or less, by influence divine,
So it more fair accordingly it makes,
And the gross matter of this earthly mine,
Which clotheth it, thereafter doth refine,
Doing away the dross which dims the light
Of that fair beam which therein is empight.

For, through infusion of celestial power,
The duller earth it quick'neth with delight,
And lifeful spirits privily doth pour
Through all the parts, that to the l...Read more of this...

...s -- and there are none, for him;
He doesn't see them, even with those eyes, -- 
And that's a pity, or I say it is.
Accordingly we have him as we have him -- 
Going his way, the way that he goes best,
A pleasant animal with no great noise
Or nonsense anywhere to set him off -- 
Save only divers and inclement devils
Have made of late his heart their dwelling place.
A flame half ready to fly out sometimes
At some annoyance may be fanned up in him,
But soon it falls, and...Read more of this...

...you set foot on shipboard? "Six feet square!" 
If you won't understand what six feet mean, 
Compute and purchase stores accordingly-- 
And if, in pique because he overhauls 
Your Jerome, piano, bath, you come on board 
Bare--why, you cut a figure at the first 
While sympathetic landsmen see you off; 
Not afterward, when long ere half seas over, 
You peep up from your utterly naked boards 
Into some snug and well-appointed berth, 
Like mine for instance (try the cooler jug--

I owed thousands and much more.
I did believe that I did nothing owe, 
And liv'd accordingly; my creditor
Believes so too, and lets me go.

Faith makes me any thing, or all
That I believe is in the sacred story: 
And where sin placeth me in Adam's fall, 
Faith sets me higher in his glory.

If I go lower in the book, 
What can be lower than the common manger? 
Faith puts me there with him, who sweetly took
Our flesh and frailty, d...Read more of this...

"The laws of France
 have been violated in China
by the above-named Gioconda, daughter of one Leonardo.
Accordingly,
 we sentence the accused

 by burning.
And tomorrow night at moonrise,
a Senegalese regiment
 will execute said decision
 of this military court..."

...
Those oats were cut, said Isaac; and he feared
That Archibald—well, he could never feel 
Quite sure of Archibald. Accordingly 
The good old man invited me—that is, 
Permitted me—to go along with him; 
And I, with a small boy’s adhesiveness
To competent old age, got up and went. 

I do not know that I cared overmuch 
For Archibald’s or anybody’s oats, 
But Archibald was quite another thing, 
And Isaac yet another; and the world
Was wide, and there was gladness everyw...Read more of this...

...as a burning of our bodies 
Alive, albeit our souls were sorry fuel. 
But now the fires are few, and we are poised 
Accordingly, for the state’s benefit, 
A few still minutes between heaven and earth.
The purpose is, when they have seen enough 
Of what it is that they are not to see, 
To pluck me as an unripe fruit of treason, 
And then to fling me back to the same earth 
Of which they are, as I suppose, the flower—
Not given to know the riper fruit that waits

“They’ll have a bad end, I’ll agree, 
But I was never born to groan; 
For I can see what I can see, 
And I’m accordingly alone.
With open heart and open door, 
I love my friends, I like my neighbors; 
But if I try to tell you more, 
Your doubts will overmatch my labors. 

“This pipe would never make me calm,
This bowl my grief would never drown. 
For grief like mine there is no balm 
In Gilead, or in Tilbury Town. 
And if I see what I can see,

Long since on earth, to take possession.
I straight returned, and knowing his great birth, 
Sought him accordingly in great resorts; 
In cities, theaters, gardens, parks, and courts; 
At length I heard a ragged noise and mirth 
Of thieves and murderers; there I him espied, 
Who straight, Your suit is granted, said, and died....Read more of this...

That harden slowly into seeming life 
And have the strength of madness. I confess, 
Accordingly, the wisdom of your care 
That I look out for them. Whether I would 
Or not, I must; and here we are as one
With our necessity. For though you loom 
A little harsh in your respect of time 
And circumstance, and of ordained eclipse, 
We know together of a golden flood 
That with its overflow shall drown away
The dikes that held it; and we ...Read more of this...

In a convex mirror, such as is used by barbers . . .
He accordingly caused a ball of wood to be made
By a turner, and having divided it in half and
Brought it to the size of the mirror, he set himself
With great art to copy all that he saw in the glass,"
Chiefly his reflection, of which the portrait
Is the reflection, of which the portrait
Is the reflection once removed.
The glass chose to reflect only what h...Read more of this...

And there a penny for 't obtain'd.
As they the market-place went by,
Some beauteous cherries caught His eye:
Accordingly He bought as many
As could be purchased for a penny,
And then, as oft His wont had been,
Placed them within His sleeve unseen.

They went out by another gate,
O'er plains and fields proceeding straight,
No house or tree was near the spot,
The sun was bright, the day was hot;
In short, the weather being such,
A draught of water was worth much....Read more of this...

People believe it, maybe from laziness
or boredom, and live accordingly:
they wait eagerly for meetings, fear parting,
and when they sing, they sing about love.

But the secret reveals itself to some,
and on them silence settles down...
I found this out by accident
and now it seems I'm sick all the time....Read more of this...
