The wonderful workings of the world: wonderful,
wonderful: I'm surprised half the time:
the ocean, multiple to a blinding
oneness
only total expression
...
Oh, talk not to me of a name great in story--
The days of our youth are the days of our glory;
Innings and afternoons. Fly lost in sunset.
Throwing arm gone bad. There's your old ball game.
...
In sunburnt parks where Sundays lie,
Or the wide wastes beyond the cities,
...
And yet a kiss (like blubber)'d blur and slip,
For should your hands drop white and empty
All the toys of the world would break.
Only
With words and people and love you move at ease.
The refugee uncertain at the door
You make at home; deftly you steady
The drunk clambering on his undulant floor.
