I should like to suggest that at least on the face of it a stroke by stroke story of a copulation is exactly as absurd as a chew b...y chew account of the consumption of a chicken's wing.LESSATTRIBUTION DETAIL »

Children who hear acquire language without any particular effort; the words that fall from others' lips they catch on the wing, as... it were, delightedly, while the little deaf child must trap them by a slow and often painful process. But whatever the process, the result is wonderful. Gradually from naming an object we advance step by step until we have traversed the vast distance between our first stammered syllable and the sweep of thought in a line of Shakespeare.LESSATTRIBUTION DETAIL »
It was your severed image that grew sweeter, That floated, wing-stiff, focused in the sun... Along uncertainty and gales of shame Blown out before I slept. Now you are one I dare not think alive: only a name That chimes occasionally, as a belief Long since embedded in the static past.LESSATTRIBUTION DETAIL »
How soon hath Time the subtle thief of youth, Stol'n on his wing my three and twentieth year!... My hasting days fly on with full career, By my late spring no bud or blossom shew'th. Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth, That I to manhood am arriv'd so near, And inward ripeness doth much less appear, That some more timely-happy spirits endu'th.
Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow, It shall be still in strictest measure ev'n, To that same lot, however mean, or high, Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heav'n; All is, if I have grace to use it so, As ever in my great Task-Master's eye.LESSATTRIBUTION DETAIL »

And God said, Let the waters generate, Reptile with spawn abundant, living soul:... And let fowl fly above the earth, with wings Displayed on the open firmament of heaven. And God created the great whales, and each Soul living, each that crept, which plenteously The waters generated by their kinds, And every bird of wing after his kind; And saw that it was good, and blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, multiply, and in the seas And lakes and running streams the waters fill; And let the fowl be multiplied on the earth.LESSATTRIBUTION DETAIL »
