A Servant To Servants

I didn't make you know how glad I was
To have you come and camp here on our land.

And see the way you lived, but I don't know!

Too sorrowful to weep.

Hath his front built of alabaster pure;
Gold in the covering of that stately place.

Seaward

Darling, you think it's love, it's just a midnight journey.
Best are the dales and rivers removed by force,
as from the next compartment throttles "Oh, stop it, Bernie,"
yet the rhythm of those paroxysms is exactly yours.

Vigil

At night, when all the house is still,
Wide-waked the chairs and tables come
And yawn and stretch their limbs until
The maids appear with pan and broom.

Rahel To Varnhagen

Note.-Rahel Robert and Varnhagen von Ense were

The Invitation To The Voyage

It is a superb land, a country of Cockaigne, as they say, that I dream of visiting with an old friend. A strange land, drowned in our northern fogs, that one might call the East of the West, the China of Europe; a land patiently and luxuriously decorated with the wise, delicate vegetations of a warm and capricious phantasy.
A true land of Cockaigne, where all is beautiful, rich, tranquil, and honest; where luxury is pleased to mirror itself in order; where life is opulent, and sweet to breathe; from whence disorder, turbulence, and the unforeseen are excluded; where happiness is married to silence; where even the food is poetic, rich and exciting at the same time; where all things, my beloved, are like you.
Do you know that feverish malady that seizes hold of us in our cold miseries; that nostalgia of a land unknown; that anguish of curiosity? It is a land
which resembles you, where all is beautiful, rich, tranquil and honest, where phantasy has built and decorated an occidental China, where life is sweet to breathe, and happiness married to silence. It is there that one would live; there that one would die.

if I can dream that I dream / and dream anything dreamable / can I dream

and beyond them his ancestral home
full of clothes, costly furniture, silverware.

Satan Absolved

Among the Orthodox, the unfallen Sons of God.

On Lending A Punch-bowl

This ancient silver bowl of mine, it tells of good old times,

Who dipped their ladle in the punch when this old bowl was new.
