mate quotes

So slowly the hot elephant hearts
grow full of desire,
The elephant, the huge old beast,
is slow to mate;
Oh, little brown girl, born for sorrow's mate,
Keep all you have of queenliness,
He made all these and more,
Made all we see; and us, in spite: how else?
The boatswain's mate was very sedate,
Yet fond of amusement, too;
He's anxious to expatiate
On how he wants you for his mate.
And don't you want to hear him, Kate?
Wait, Kate! You skate at such a rate
You leave behind your skating mate.
Troll the bowl, the jolly nut-brown bowl,
And here, kind mate, to thee!
Of Consciousness, her awful Mate
The Soul cannot be rid --
As easy the secreting her
Behind the Eyes of God.
A beautiful woman is a practical poet, taming her savage mate, planting tenderness, hope and eloquence in all whom she approaches.
