Archie Randolph Ammons Wind Poems

  • 1.
    The reeds give way to the wind
    and give the wind away.

  • 2.
    When I was young the silk
    of my mind
    hard as a peony head
  • 3.
    I look for the way
    things will turn
    out spiralling from a center,
    the shape
  • 4.
    So I said I am Ezra
    and the wind whipped my throat
    gaming for the sounds of my voice
    I listened to the wind
  • 5.
    Walking is like
    imagination, a
    single step
    dissolves the circle
  • 6.
    I went for a walk over the dunes again this morning
    to the sea,
    then turned right along
    the surf

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem
Beatrice. (From Dante. Purgatorio, Xxx., Xxxi.)
 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Even as the Blessed, at the final summons,
Shall rise up quickened, each one from his grave,
Wearing again the garments of the flesh,
So, upon that celestial chariot,
A hundred rose
ad vocem tanti senis
Ministers and messengers of life eternal.
