One of those blue official things;
And, sealing it, to mock our hope,
The moon, a silver wafer, clings.

A Busy Man

This crowded life of God's good giving
No man has relished more than I;
I've been so goldarned busy living
I've never had the time to die.

Joy

Joy, what could be more eperetising than the Joy of life. what is life without joy. Love it can be given and it can never be taken. What is life like without being loved.

There is a million of things that I would rather do than love another. I would count stars day to day admiring each and everyone of them. I am greedy in nature. I do nothing which is temporary. my main reason why I would spend a lifetime counting stars. No matter how many I count each day the end is never near .

Rolls the restless wireless sea,
Where the wireless waves go bobbing
Up and down so dolefully.

And life more soft and hushed for himâ?¦.

Elegy I

Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angels'

Stages

As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.

Hermann Hesse
The Eternal Circle

Now, a visitor from somewhere right outside this Mundane Ball
Do not ask me where he came from, for that point's not clear at all;
For he might have been an angel, or he might have come from Mars,
Or from any of the other of the fixed or unfixed stars.

Dropping for ten thousand feet
Sounding in a hundred gorges,

So, into Cornwall you go down,
And leave me loitering here in town.

Not ocean-thunder in Cornish cave.

Upon the Ordered Plan.

When politics absorbs the livelong day,

So far, so far away.

That gave the gods their wings.

Laughter

I Laugh at Life: its antics make for me a giddy games,
Where only foolish fellows take themselves with solemn aim.
I laugh at pomp and vanity, at riches, rank and pride;
At social inanity, at swager, swank and side.

Said a poet to a woodlouse, "Thou art certainly my brother;

In the colours shaded off thee, the suggestions of a soul.

Striving to make each to the other fit.
