Louise Bogan Fire Poems

  • 1.
    IĆ¢??ve come to give you fruit from out my orchard,
    Of wide report.
    I have trees there that bear me many apples.
    Of every sort:
  • 2.
    Men loved wholly beyond wisdom
    Have the staff without the banner.
    Like a fire in a dry thicket
    Rising within women's eyes
  • 3.
    I burned my life, that I might find
    A passion wholly of the mind,
    Thought divorced from eye and bone,
    Ecstasy come to breath alone.
  • 4.
    Nothing was remembered, nothing forgotten.
    When we awoke, wagons were passing on the warm summer pavements,
    The window-sills were wet from rain in the night,
    Birds scattered and settled over chimneypots
  • 5.
    This youth too long has heard the break
    Of waters in a land of change.
    He goes to see what suns can make
    From soil more indurate and strange.

By that broad water of the west,
There comes a glory on the walls:

Thy marble bright in dark appears,
As slowly steals a silver flame
Along the letters of thy name,
