[recycled] the directions of emotion

What lips my
lips have kissed, &
where, & why, I
have forgotten, &
what arms have lain
under my head
till morning; but the
rain is full of
ghosts tonight, that
tap & sigh upon
the glass & listen
for reply; & in my
heart there stirs a
quiet pain for un-
remembered lads
that not again will
turn to me at mid-
night with a cry.

Thus in the winter
stands a lonely tree,
nor knows what
birds have vanished
one by one, yet
know its boughs
more silent than
before: I cannot
say what loves have
come & gone; I only
know that summer
sang in me a little
while, that in me
sings no more.

is no parenthesis
& death i think

for life's not a
back in my arms
laugh, leaning
each other: then
we are for

which says
eyelids' flutter
is less than your
ure of my brain
cry—the best gest-
all flowers. Don't
lady i swear by
than wisdom
are a better fate
approves, & kisses
my blood

Spring is in the
to be a fool while
kiss you; wholly
will never wholly
syntax of things
any attention to the
first who pays
since feeling is

Le pont Mirabeau

Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
            Et nos amours
      Faut-il qu'il m'en souvienne
 La joie venait toujours après la peine

Today the
postman brought
me a considered
rebuttal of John
Knox's The First
Blast of the Trumpet
Against the Monstrous
Regimen of Women
. He
was pleased it was
finally finished,
had taken him
nearly 450 years
to do so. Was dis-
appointed so much
bigotry remained.
