Now is the time when all occasional things close into silence,only one tree,one svelte translation of eternity unto the pale meaning of heaven clings, (whose million leaves in winsome indolence simmer upon thinking twilight momently) as down the oblivious west's numerous dun magnificence conquers magnificence. In heaven's intolerable athanor inimitably tortured the base day utters at length her soft intrinsic hour, and from those tenuous fires which more and more sink and are lost the divine alchemist, the magus of creation,lifts a flower— whence is the world's insufferable clay clothed with incognizable amethyst.
Lovely as those ladies were mine is a little lovelier. And if she speaks in her frail way, it is wholly to bewitch my smallest thought with a most swift radiance wherein slowly drift murmurous things divinely bright; it is foolingly to smite my spirit with the lithe free twitch of scintillant space,with the cool writhe of gloom truly which syncopate some sunbeam's skilful fingerings; it is utterly to lull with foliate inscrutable sweetness my soul obedient; it is to stroke my being with numbing forests frolicsome, fleetly mystical,aroam with keen creatures of idiom (beings alert and innocent very deftly upon which indolent miracles impinge) —it is distinctly to confute my reason with the deep caress of every most shy thing and mute, it is to quell me with the twinge of all living intense things.
Little kittens who are called spring, is what we stroke maybe asleep? or maybe did something go away ever so quietly when we weren't looking. 3i V Tumbling-hair picker of buttercups violets dandelions And the big bullying daisies through the field wonderful with eyes a little sorry Another comes also picking flowers 32 ORIENTALE I i spoke to thee with a smile and thou didst not answer thy mouth is as a chord of crimson music Come hither O thou,is life not a smile? i spoke to thee with a song and thou didst not listen thine eyes are as a vase of divine silence Come hither O thou,is life not a song?
