To cotton-field drudge or cleaner of privies I lean, On his right cheek I put the family kiss, And in my soul I swear I never will deny him.
I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer morning, How you settled your head athwart my hips and gently turn'd over upon me, And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone, and plunged your tongue to my bare-stript heart, And reach'd till you felt.
To behold the day-break!
My head slues round on my neck, Music rolls, but not from the organ, Folks are around me, but they are no household of mine.Prodigal, you have given me love-therefore I to you give love!I chant the chant of dilation or pride, We have had ducking and deprecating about enough, I show that size is dames à la recherche pour les amoureux de puebla only development.Nest of guarded duplicate eggs!And my spirit said No, we but level that lift to pass and continue beyond.Fetching it to me with full hands; How could I answer the child?How the flukes splash!The sentries desert every other part of me, They have left me helpless to a red marauder, They all come to the headland to witness and assist against.(Only what proves itself to every man and woman is so, Only what nobody denies.) A minute and a drop of me settle my brain, I believe the soggy clods shall become lovers and lamps, And a compend of compends is the meat.I wish I could translate the hints about the dead young men and women, And the hints about old men and mothers, and the offspring taken soon out of their laps.And proceed to fill my next fold of the future.My breath is tight in its throat, Unclench your floodgates, you are too much for.All forces have been steadily employ'd to complete and delight me, Now on this spot I stand with my robust soul.Cycles ferried my cradle, rowing and rowing like cheerful boatmen, For room to me stars kept aside in their own rings, They sent influences to look after what was to hold.Births have brought us richness and variety, And other births will bring us richness and variety.Down-hearted doubters dull and excluded, Frivolous, sullen, moping, angry, affected, dishearten'd, atheistical, I know every one of you, I know the sea of torment, doubt, despair and unbelief.
Lack one lacks both, and the unseen is proved by the seen, Till that becomes unseen and receives proof in its turn.
