Excerpt: Thunderstorms // My mind has thunderstorms, // That brood for heavy hours: // Until they rain me words; // My thoughts are drooping flowers // And sulking, silent birds. // Yet come, dark thunderstorms, // And brood your heavy hours; // For when you rain me words, // My thoughts are dancing flowers // And joyful singing birds. // The Mind's Liberty // The mind, with its own eyes and ears, // May for these others have no care; // No matter where this body is, // The mind is free to go elsewhere. // My mind can be a sailor, when // This body's still confined to land; // And turn these mortals into trees, // That walk in Fleet Street or the Strand. // So, when I'm passing Charing Cross, // Where porters work both night and day, // I ofttimes hear sweet Malpas Brook, // That flows thrice fifty miles away. // And when I'm passing near St Paul's // I see beyond the dome and crowd, // Twm Barlum, that green pap in Gwent, // With its dark nipple in a cloud. // The Moon // Thy beauty haunts me heart and soul, // O, thou fair Moon, so close and bright; // Thy beauty makes me like the child // That cries aloud to own thy light: // The little child that lifts each arm // To press thee to her bosom warm. // Though there are birds that sing this night // With thy white beam across their throats, // Let my deep silence speak for me // More than for them their sweetest notes: // Who worships thee till music fails, // Is greater than thy nightingales...
