and you keep quiet and I will go.

Run naked into books, the white and green leaves open
History is theirs whose language is the sun.

Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

And offer to put me gently out of my pain.

And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

And so, I missed my chance with one of the lords
Of life.
And I have something to expiate:
A pettiness.

Then with eerie delicate whistle-chirrup whisperings

She launches away, towards the infinite

And the laburnum subsides to empty

Far too prone to influence.
Well, poor bird – she should have known
That your song must be your own.
