The Lake Isle of Innisfree
BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS


I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.



Legendary performance by Tommy Makem: Come by the hills/The Lake Isle of Innisfree

This was the poem my friend recited to me, in front if all our friends, when I realized that he was being more than friendly toward me. It was the beginning of our courtship, and ten years later we're a family of five.

Not into the ocean, of all the world
Will I throw myself! Soaring not
Where the first created things, the rejoicing choirs of the sons of light,
Worship, worship deep! and go in delight!

Just a drop in the bucket,
Only about the earth will I soar, and worship!
Halleluja, Halleluja! The drop in the bucket
Also ran from the hand of the Almighty!

Then the hand of the Almighty
shrank the great earth!
The currents of rushing light and the seven stars became
because you, drop, escaped the hand of the Almighty!

Then, a current of the rushing lights, and our Sun was
A crash of waves fell down on the rock,
the clouds pinned down, and Orion girded,
because you, drop, escaped the hand of the Almighty!

Who are the thousands of thousands, who all the myriad
which made up the drop and inhabit it? and who am I?
Halleluja to the originators! more like the earth, the fount!
more like the seven stars, the rays all streaming out together!

But you, little spring worm,
that greenish gold that plays next to me,
you live; and are perhaps
oh, not immortal!

I have gone out to worship,
and I weep? Forgive, forgive,
Also these tears that will end,
Oh you, who will be!

You will reveal all my doubts,
Oh you, who will lead me through,
the shadowed valley of death! I then will learn
whether the little golden worm has a soul.

You are only the more educated dust,
Son of May, so then,
become again fleeing dust,
Or what else the Lord wills!

Pour out anew, you, my eyes,
Tears of joy!
You, my harp,
Praise the Lord!

Entwined again, with palms,
is my harp wound! I sing to the Lord!
Here I stand. All around me
Is everything glorious! And everything marvelous!

With a deeper awe, I look at creation,
then you!
nameless you!
have made them!

Breezes that waft around me, and gently cooling,
breathe on my scorched face,
you, wonderful breezes,
sent from the Lord, the Infinite!

But now they are still, scarcely breathing
the morning sun will be oppressive!
the clouds are streaming back!
it is visible that He comes, the Lord!

Now they soar, rush, whirl the wind!
How they bend the forest! How they lift up the streams!
It is visible, how you can make it be mortal
Yes, that is you, visible, Infinite One!

The forest inclines itself, the stream flees, and I
am not falling onto my face?
Lord! Lord! God! Merciful and gracious!
Near you! Have mercy on me!

Are you angry, Lord
as the night is your raiment?
This night is the blessing of the earth.
Father, you are not angry!

They come, distributing refreshing things
Over the strengthened stalk!
Over the heart-warming grapes!
Father, you are not angry!

Everything is still before you, near you!
All around is everything quiet!
Even the little worm bedecked in gold, notes this!
Is it possible that it is not soulless? Is it immortal?

Oh, how I thirst, Lord, to be able to praise you!
Ever more lordly, you reveal yourself to be!
Darker and darker the night around you,
And full of blessings!

Do you see the drawing light, evidence of the approaching storm?
Do you hear Jehova's thunder?
Do you hear him? Hear ye him,
the shattering thunder of the Lord?

Lord! Lord! God!
Merciful, and gracious!
Hallowed and exalted
Be thy divine name!

And the stormy winds? They carry the thunder!
How they rush! As with loud surges, they flow through the forest!
And now are silent.
The black clouds slowly transform.

Do you see the new evidence of the approaching storm, the flitting beams?
Hear ye, high in the clouds, the thunder of the Lord?
It calls: "Jehova! Jehova!"
And fumes all over the smashed up woods.

But not our cottage,
Our father commanded
His destroyer
To pass over our home.

Oh, it whispers, it whispers
Heaven and earth, by the merciful rain!
Now, how they thirsted! The earth refreshed,
And the heavens were relieved and filled with blessings!

See, Jehova no longer comes in the storm
In a quiet, gentle ripple,
comes Jehova,
And below him, the bow of peace is drawn.

The Rite of Spring written by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, translated by Lycka Utan Gräns here.

strange luck

by Charles Bukowski


slapped across the face with a
shit brick
he stopped at Biff's Bar
for a quick one and stayed
five years.
he survived through and with
a half-witted
guile.
he was evicted from room after
room.
within a four block area he
had lived in nine
rooms.
each was about the same:
dirty, small, gloomy.
he lived on loaves of bread
alone.
at rare times he added
bologna or peanut
butter.
in the bar it was beer,
beer, beer
and at rare times,
whiskey or vodka or
scotch or gin.
gin didn't do much for
him but he
welcomed it.

nobody knew where he had
come from, what he wanted.
the others accepted him
as a fixture, an oddball
fixture.
the women, largely, ignored
him.

he was neither bitter, angry
or displeased
he was just there.

then, one day, after 5 years
he just walked out and was
never seen there
again.

now he owns a large home, a
late model car,
there is a spa, a swimming
pool, a vast garden, a
wife.
sometimes you will read of
him in the
metropolitan
dailies.

he still drinks,
but moderately.
beer, wine or an occasional
vodka.

he drinks alone
in an upstairs room.
he sits at the keyboard of an
expensive
computer.

those few who remember him
can't believe the
transition.

he knows that is all
just game-playing by the
gods.

he feels no different than
he ever
did.
he is no less or no more
than he was
then.

he drinks at the computer
and waits for death
as he has always
done.

it's hard but it's
fair.

and strange and strange and
strange and
strange.

One of my favorites is this John Keats sonnet:

When I have fears that I may cease to be
  Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,
Before high-pilèd books, in charactery,
  Hold like rich garners the full ripened grain;
When I behold, upon the night’s starred face,
  Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
  Their shadows with the magic hand of chance;
And when I feel, fair creature of an hour,
  That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
  Of unreflecting love—then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till love and fame to nothingness do sink.

some say the world will end in fire,
some say in in ice.

from what ive tasted of desire
i hold with those who favor fire.

but if i had to perish twice,
i think i know enough of hate
to say that for destruction ice
is also great
and would suffice.

Robert Frost? Good choice. I really love his take on nature in "Desert Places" and "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening". It's like he's staring into the void and stuck between two choices. Pretty awesome

My clan's curs pursue him like crippled game;
they'll rip him apart if he approaches their pack.
It is otherwise with us.

Wulf's on one island; we're on another.
His island's a fortress, fastened by fens.
Here, bloodthirsty curs howl for carnage.
They'll rip him apart if he approaches their pack.
It is otherwise with us.

My heart pursued Wulf like a panting hound,
but whenever it rained—how I wept!—
the boldest cur grasped me in his paws:
good feelings for him, but their end loathsome!

Wulf, O, my Wulf, my ache for you
has made me sick; your seldom-comings
have left me famished, deprived of real meat.

Have you heard, Eadwacer? Watchdog!
A wolf has borne our wretched whelp to the woods.
One can easily sever what never was one:
our song together.

the laughing heart

by Charles Bukowski


your life is your life.
don’t let it be clubbed into dank
submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the
darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you
chances.
know them, take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death
in life,
sometimes.
and the more often you
learn to do it,
the more light there will
be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have
it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in
you.

That the self advances and confirms the ten thousand things
          is called delusion;
That the ten thousand things advance and confirm the self
          is called enlightenment.

                      -    Zen Master Dogen Zenji, 1200 - 1253
                            Moon in a Dewdrop
                            Translated by Kazuaki Tanahashi


                          Clambering up the Cold Mountain path,
                        The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on:
                        The long gorge choked with scree and boulders,
                        The wide creek, the mist-blurred grass.
                        The moss is slippery, though there's been no rain.
                        The pine sings, but there's no wind.
                        Who can leap the world's ties
                        And sit with me among the white clouds.

Those Winter Sundays
By Robert Hayden


Sundays too my father got up early
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
then with cracked hands that ached
from labor in the weekday weather made
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.
When the rooms were warm, he’d call,
and slowly I would rise and dress,
fearing the chronic angers of that house,

Speaking indifferently to him,
who had driven out the cold
and polished my good shoes as well.
What did I know, what did I know
of love’s austere and lonely offices?

Sweet Emily.



A Man may make a Remark -
In itself - a quiet thing
That may furnish the Fuse unto a Spark
In dormant nature - lain -

Let us divide - with skill -
Let us discourse - with care -
Powder exists in Charcoal -
Before it exists in Fire -

Original Sin
by Robinson Jeffers

The man-brained and man-handed ground-ape, physically
The most repulsive of all hot-blooded animals
Up to that time of the world: they had dug a pitfall
And caught a mammoth, but how could their sticks and stones
Reach the life in that hide? They danced around the pit, shrieking
With ape excitement, flinging sharp flints in vain, and the stench of their bodies
Stained the white air of dawn; but presently one of them
Remembered the yellow dancer, wood-eating fire
That guards the cave-mouth: he ran and fetched him, and others
Gathered sticks at the wood’s edge; they made a blaze
And pushed it into the pit, and they fed it high, around the mired sides
Of their huge prey. They watched the long hairy trunk
Waver over the stifle trumpeting pain,
And they were happy.

Meanwhile the intense color and nobility of sunrise,
Rose and gold and amber, flowed up the sky. Wet rocks were shining, a little wind
Stirred the leaves of the forest and the marsh flag-flowers; the soft valley between the low hills
Became as beautiful as the sky; while in its midst, hour after hour, the happy hunters
Roasted their living meat slowly to death.

These are the people.
This is the human dawn. As for me, I would rather

Be a worm in a wild apple than a son of man.
But we are what we are, and we might remember
Not to hate any person, for all are vicious;
And not be astonished at any evil, all are deserved;
And not fear death; it is the only way to be cleansed.

Sisters of mercy


All the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song
Oh, I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long

Yes, you who must leave everything that you cannot control
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul
Well, I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned
When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned

Well, they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem

When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon
Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon
And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night
We weren't lovers like that and besides, it would still be alright
We weren't lovers like that and besides, it would still be alright

Leonard Cohen.

The Age Demanded

The age demanded that we sing
And cut away our tongue.

The age demanded that we flow
And hammered in the bung.

The age demanded that we dance
And jammed us into iron pants.

And in the end the age was handed
The sort of shit that it demanded.

- Ernest Hemingway
