The Windhover: To Christ Our Lord

I caught this morning morning's minion, kingdom of daylight's
dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing

Center of all centers, core of cores,
almond self-enclosed, and growing sweet--
all this universe, to the furthest stars
all beyond them, is your flesh, your fruit.

With focus sharp as Flemish-painted face
In film of varnish brightly fixed
And through a polished hand-lens deeply seen,
Sunday at noon through hyaline thin air

The spectre of the skies;

family life? is there communication?
Leaf litter's monster weapon, what can you say

Our Time To Fart

I hear you cry about a million bugs we spent on drugs in a day

And that we paid five hundred more wagers tonight in a club

Friendship

On board a ship the sun shines to full and the moon & the billion stars shine not to full;
Sailing high and low, and smoothly safe amidst the turbulent snaps of waves and typhoon strikes;
As I lay in bed, a smile in my lips and a peaceful mind indeed!

Whom does it look like? Eyes too crystalline,
A head like Byron's, tender mouth, and neck,
Slender and white, a pathos as of smiles

Heaven Is But The Hour

Eyes wide for wisdom, calm for joy or pain,
Bright hair alloyed with silver, scarcely gold.
And gracious lips flower pressed like buds to hold
The guarded heart against excess of rain.

Man's leading aim in life.

We laughed together at our own lame jokes,
And those huge trampolines at 20 we jumped ;
We had vowed forever...
