...rom soil more indurate and strange. 

He cuts what holds his days together 
And shuts him in, as lock on lock: 
The arrowed vane announcing weather, 
The tripping racket of a clock; 

Seeking, I think, a light that waits 
Still as a lamp upon a shelf, -- 
A land with hills like rocky gates 
Where no sea leaps upon itself.

But he will find that nothing dares 
To be enduring, save where, south 
Of hidden deserts, torn fire glares 
On beauty with a rusted mouth, --

...he jaguar's flying foot
 soon to sink in arctic snow
 Penguins plunged against the Sphinx
 The top of the Empire state
 arrowed in a broccoli field in Sicily
 Eiffel shaped like a C in Magnolia Gardens
 St. Sophia peeling over Sudan
 O athletic Death Sportive Bomb
 the temples of ancient times
 their grand ruin ceased
 Electrons Protons Neutrons 
 gathering Hersperean hair
 walking the dolorous gulf of Arcady
 joining marble helmsmen
 entering the final ampitheater

...stood she; 
Her nine-and-fifty years came back; 
 She sank upon her knee 
Beside the durn, and like a dart 
A something arrowed through her heart 
 In shoots of agony. 

Their footsteps died as she leant there, 
 Lit by the morning star 
Hanging above the moorland, where 
 The aged elm-rows are; 
And, as o'ernight, from Pummery Ridge 
To Maembury Ring and Standfast Bridge 
 No life stirred, near or far. 

Though inner mischief worked amain, 
 She reached her husband's...Read More

...barely-lived dying

a shuffling past yews
thoughts finding rhythm
a lightness that bred
from a silent aceptance

a red-arrowed plane
in single formation
scissored the sky's blue
above the procession

sagittarian arrow
a sizzling of fire
an unconscious dipping
of wings in salute

to a baby whose burning
from birth to departing
took thirteen fast days
from rain into sunshine

till almost the hilltop
the hole with its mound
a circle of people
shared its raw hollow

no vicar no ...Read More

by Lowell, Amy
Sharp as a wheeling edge of disked, carnation flame,
Gem-hard and cutting upward, slowly the round sun came.
The arrowed fire caught the burning-glass and glanced,
Split to a multitude of pointed spears, and lanced,
A deeper, hotter flame, it took the incense pile
Which welcomed it and broke into a little smile
Of yellow flamelets, creeping, crackling, thrusting up,
A golden, red-slashed lily in a lacquer cup.
"O ye Fire and Heat, Bless ye the Lord; 
Praise Him, an...Read More
