Example text

Whoso rideth in the tale of Chaucer knoweth many a pair of companions blithe and fair; who to walk with Master Gower in Confessio doth prefer shall not lack for beauty there, nor he that will amaying go with my lord Boccaccio— whoso knocketh at the door 24 of Marie and of Maleore findeth of ladies goodly store whose beauty did in nothing err. ) Her waist is a most tiny hinge offlesh,awinsome thing and strange; apt in my hand warmly to lie it is a throbbing neck whereby to grasp the belly's ample vase (that urgent urn which doth amass for whoso drinks,a dizzier wine than should the grapes of heaven combine with earth's madness)—'tis a gate unto a palace intricate (whereof the luscious pillars rise which are her large and shapely thighs) in whose dome the trembling bliss of a kingdom wholly is.

Never my soul so fortunate is(past the luck of all dead men and loving)as invisibly when upon her palpable solitude a furtive occult fragrance steals, a gesture of immaculate perfume—whereby(with fear aglow) my soul is wont wholly to know the poignant instantaneous fern whose scrupulous enchanted fronds toward all things intrinsic yearn, the immanent subliminal fern of her delicious voice (of her voice which always dwells beside the vivid magical impetuous and utter ponds of dream;and very secret food its leaves inimitable find beyond the white authentic springs, beyond the sweet instinctive wells, which make toflourishthe minute spontaneous meadow of her mind) —the vocal fern,always which feels the keen ecstatic actual tread (and thereto perfectly responds) of all things exquisite and dead, all living things and beautiful.

And still to be immortal is our doom; but a rain frailly raging whom the hills sink into and their sunsets,it shall pass. ) 12 III Always before your voice my soul half-beautiful and wholly droll is as some smooth and awkward foal, whereof young moons begin the newness of his skin, so of my stupid sincere youth the exquisite failure uncouth discovers a trembling and smooth Unstrength,against the strong silences of your song; or as a single lamb whose sheen of full unsheared fleece is mean beside its lovelier friends,between your thoughts more white than wool My thought is sorrowful: but my heart smote in trembling thirds of anguish quivers to your words, As to aflightof thirty birds shakes with a thickening fright the sudden fooled light.
