blood-air barrier quotes

On such a night, when Air has loosed
Its guardian grasp on blood and brain,
Men hear gladly of the power of blood or race. Every body likes to know that his advantages cannot be attributed to air, soil, sea ...
Blood has been harder to dam back than water.
Just when we think we have it impounded safe
No sleep. The sultriness pervades the air
And binds the brain--a dense oppression, such
Wild roses, at your back porch, break their blood,
And bud to test surprises of sea air,
For do but note a wild and wanton herd
Or race of youthful and unhandled colts
I lean and loaf at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.
Being so caught up,
So mastered by the brute blood of the air,
The yellow pool has overflowed high up on Clooth-na-Bare,
For the wet winds are blowing out of the clinging air;
Old men who never cheated, never doubted,
Communicated monthly, sit and stare
