The House Was Quiet and The World Was Calm

– by Wallace Stevens.

The house was quiet and the world was calm.
The reader became the book; and summer night

Was like the conscious being of the book.
The house was quiet and the world was calm.

The words were spoken as if there was no book,
Except that the reader leaned above the page,

Wanted to lean, wanted much most to be
The scholar to whom his book is true, to whom

The summer night is like a perfection of thought.
The house was quiet because it had to be.

The quiet was part of the meaning, part of the mind:
The access of perfection to the page.

And the world was calm. The truth in a calm world,
In which there is no other meaning, itself

Is calm, itself is summer and night, itself
Is the reader leaning late and reading there.

XXII

I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.
 
Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.

– Emily Dickinson, Complete Poems

O sweet spontaneous

by e.e. cummings

O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
the
doting

             fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched
and
poked

thee
,has the naughty thumb
of science prodded
thy

        beauty      how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
gods
         (but
true

to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic
lover

             thou answerest


them only with

                              spring)

//heroes

Keep your friends close

And your enemies closer

But your heroes

Keep them

As far away as possible

unnamed

my real name

was stolen

by you

years and years

they called me by names

i did not understand

but now

now

i’m coming to take it

give it back
