...than you --
Do you think I'd stop
For a Firmament --
Or a Cubit -- or so?

I could borrow a Bonnet
Of the Lark --
And a Chamois' Silver Boot --
And a stirrup of an Antelope --
And be with you -- Tonight!

But, Moon, and Star,
Though you're very far --
There is one -- farther than you --
He -- is more than a firmament -- from Me --
So I can never go!...Read more of this...

...of snow 
 Makes its cap like a crater to blaze. 
 
 In the darkness, its front seems some pale orb of light, 
 The chamois with fear flashes on in its flight, 
 The eagle afar is driven; 
 The deluge but roars in despair to its feet, 
 And scarce dare the eye its aspect to meet, 
 So near doth it rise to heaven. 
 
 Alone on these altitudes, feeling no fear, 
 Forgetful of earth, my spirit draws near; 
 On the starry vault to gaze, 
 And nearer, to gaze on those...Read more of this...

...r his knifing knees,
he did it on the runners, feathering,
being bow, catching no crab. The ridges were sore
& tore chamois. It was not done with ease.

So Henry was a hero, malgré lui,
that day, for blundering; until & after the coach
said this & which to him.
That happy day, whenas the pregnant back

but to make for it room.

Therefore he rowed rowed rowed. They did not win.
Forever in the winning & losi...Read more of this...

...e Testimony. 

Let Eleazar with the Ermine serve the Lord decently and in purity. 

Let Ithamar minister with a Chamois, and bless the name of Him, which cloatheth the naked. 

Let Gershom with an Pygarg Hart bless the name of Him, who feedeth the hungry. 

Let Merari praise the wisdom and power of God with the Coney, who scoopeth the rock, and archeth in the sand. 

Let Kohath serve with the Sable, and bless God in the ornaments of the Temple.

...in care, not madness.Concurring hands divide

flax for damask
that when bleached by Irish weather
has the silvered chamois-leather
water-tightness of a
skin.Twisted torcs and gold new-moon-shaped
lunulae aren't jewelry
like the purple-coral fuchsia-tree's.Eire--
the guillemot
so neat and the hen

...d learn to read and write, and my father will teach 
him to carve,
so that he can make the little horses, and cows, and chamois,
out of white wood. Oh, No! No! No! How 
can I think such things,
I am not good. My father will have nothing to do with 
my boy,
I shall be an outcast thing. Oh, Mother of our Lord God, 
be merciful,
take away my shame! Let my body be as it was before he 
came.
No little baby for me to keep underneath my heart for those long 
months.<...Read more of this...
