These Words

These words we read from some desire

. . that someone live

. . the this entire.

Read is our reach,

. . our grasp, our be

. . life that is know

. . wings that are free.

Ours

Existence bare, most plain,

. . . just what is thing.

Existence only, all,

. . . whole running ball.

Existence life, out come,

. . . out earth, out sun.

Existence mind, live see,

. . . light you, light me.

Existence we, right thrown,

. . . to show, know, own.

We of Love

Stand in deep winter my night to glassed light,

. . his spring to door, his smile, his bright,

. . his bring inside to our words and eyes

. . into our worlds and ways, and to our yes.

Unfold the bloom night to day, room by room,

. . on the floors, in falls or joys,

. . on our shores, wave by wave,

. . year on year, we of we of love.

Would Be

Would be the rise to wonder,

        this click-shut night.

To those trains’ risen rumbles,

        this silk tie tight.

 

Would be to traction motor,

        copper, shellac.

To axles’ bright ten-thousandths,

        castings in stack.

 

Would be for tons two hundred,

        high cranes glide free.

To locomotive thunder,

        we who would be.

Vast Holdings

By with and is,

    shell had washed, time been ribbed to ends.

From chain clasped fast, shore-trophy depends,

    emblems all world, stays we echoes.

Stream

Only this racing stream

insisting, existing

its bed, course, and cargo,

its downward and inward,

its wide, wide tomorrow,

its lastly vast salt sea

and this bright smiling we.
