by Breton, Andre angle to my window
A wholly imaginary house
It is there that from one second to the next
In the inviolate darkness
I anticipate once more the fascinating rift occurring
The one and only rift
In the facade and in my heart
The closer I come to you
In reality
The more the key sings at the door of the unknown room
Where you appear alone before me
At first you coalesce entirely with the brightness
The elusive angle of a curtain
It's a field of jasmine I gazed upon at dawn on a ...Read More

...nge strike me and you
ln the house not made with hands?


Oh I must feel your brain prompt mine,
Your heart anticipate my heart,
You must be just before, in fine,
See and make me see, for your part,
New depths of the divine!


But who could have expected this
When we two drew together first
Just for the obvious human bliss,
To satisfy life's daily thirst
With a thing men seldom miss?


Come back with me to the first of all,
Let us lean and love ...Read More

...rie, by the way, whey-faced, with Spode
hooves and horns: nor are they the metaphysicattle of Japan
that have merely to anticipate

scoring a bull's-eye and, lo, it happens;
these are earth-flesh, earth-blood, salt of the earth,
whose talismans are their own jawbones

buried under threshold and hearth.
For though they trace themselves to the kith and kine
that presided over the birth

of Christ (so carry their calves a full nine
months and boast liquorice

And he laffed till he had to he bled.

T 'were a plan to anticipate Perkin, 
By getting in first with these tales,
Start another rebellion before he arrived 
And take the wind out of his sails.

And so Lambert Simnel's rebellion 
Made its fateful debut in the North 
Experts disagree who he made out to be, 
John the Second or Richard the Fourth.

They flocked to his f...Read More

Pollute the passing wind, when raging Power
Drives on his blood-hounds to the chase of Man;
And as thy thoughts anticipate that day
When God shall judge aright, in charity
Pray for the wicked rulers of mankind....Read More

...but of each other say
From what a lordly House we took our way,
And to what Hostel of the Gods we wend,
Oh would we not anticipate the end?
Oh would we not have paradise to-day?...Read More

...In Tilbury Town did Old King Cole 
A wise old age anticipate, 
Desiring, with his pipe and bowl, 
No Khan’s extravagant estate. 
No crown annoyed his honest head,
No fiddlers three were called or needed; 
For two disastrous heirs instead 
Made music more than ever three did. 

Bereft of her with whom his life 
Was harmony without a flaw,
He took no other for a wife, 
Nor sighed for any that he saw; ...Read More

...u’ll be floundering in the ditch that waits 
For riders who forget where they are riding. 
If we and France, as you anticipate,
Must eat each other, what Cæsar, if not yourself, 
Do you see for the master of the feast? 
There may be a place waiting on your head 
For laurel thick as Nero’s. You don’t know. 
I have not crossed your glory, though I might
If I saw thrones at auction. 


Yes, you might. 
If war is on the way, I shall be—here; 
And I’ve...Read More

Anticipate when the thirty or fifty millions, are to become the hundred, or two hundred
 millions, of equal freemen and freewomen, amicably joined. 

Recall ages—One age is but a part—ages are but a part; 
Recall the angers, bickerings, delusions, superstitions, of the idea of caste, 
Recall the bloody cruelties and crimes.

And in a proper season let him run. 
You may be dead then, even as you may now 
Anticipate some other mortal strokes 
Attending your felicity; and for that, 
Oblivion heretofore has done some running
Away from graves, and will do more of it.” 

That’s how it is your wiser spirit speaks,

If not, why paint? And why, in any event,

...d, sick of welfare, found a kind of meetness
To be diseased ere that there was true needing.
Thus policy in love t' anticipate
The ills that were not, grew to faults assured,
And brought to medicine a healthful state
Which, rank of goodness, would by ill be cured.
But thence I learn and find the lesson true:
Drugs poison him that so fell sick of you....Read More

...ere was silence deep as death, 
And the boldest held his breath 
For a time. 

But the might of England flush'd 
To anticipate the scene; 
And her van the fleeter rush'd 
O'er the deadly space between: 
'Hearts of oak!' our captains cried, when each gun 
From its adamantine lips 
Spread a death-shade round the ships, 
Like the hurricane eclipse 
Of the sun. 

Again! again! again! 
And the havoc did not slack, 
Till a feeble cheer the Dane 
To our cheering sent us back...Read More

...The murky night is gone. 

How could the patient pine have known 
The morning breeze would come, 
Or humble flowers anticipate 
The insect's noonday hum-- 

Till the new light with morning cheer 
From far streamed through the aisles, 
And nimbly told the forest trees 
For many stretching miles? 

I've heard within my inmost soul 
Such cheerful morning news, 
In the horizon of my mind 
Have seen such orient hues, 

As in the twilight of the dawn, 
When the first birds awak...Read More

...hallowed rounds I trace
And listen to the echoings of my feet.
Or on the half demolished tomb,
Whole warning texts anticipate my doom:
Mark the clear orb of night
Cast thro' the storying glass a faintly-varied light.

Nor will I not in some more gloomy hour
Invoke with fearless awe thine holier power,
Wandering beneath the sainted pile
When the blast moans along the darksome aisle,
And clattering patters all around
The midnight shower with dreary sound.

But swee...Read More

Through years nailed up like dripping panther hides

Of life, the snow-wreathed honor of extreme age....Read More

Above the highest sphere we meet
Unseen, unknown, and greet as angels greet.

So then we do anticipate
Our after-fate,
And are alive i'th' skies,
If thus our lips and eyes
Can speak like spirits unconfined
In Heaven, their earthy bodies left behind....Read More

...preparing a farewell feast for me, 
A soothing grave in the shade of oak trees 
A marble epitaph of time 
And always I anticipate them at the funeral: 
Who then has died...who? 

Writing is a puppy biting nothingness 
Writing wounds without a trace of blood. 

Our cups of coffee. Birds green trees 
In the blue shade, the sun gambols from one wall 
To another like a gazelle 
The water in the clouds has the unlimited shape of what is left to us
