The Lover

I rooted silver stars from heaven in showers,
Rived adamant to show an azure gap,
Captured the very Psyche in my cap,
Filched from the sack of Time six diamond hours.
Hyperborean in my crown of flowers
I ran and leapt the cliff of thunderclap
Plunging through green sea-light where bronze fronds wrap
Crumbling pearl palaces and coral bowers.

Now--"Could I move, all humankind would pant
Even to think such effort! Could my songs
Cry out, dusked heaven would shudder at my wrongs!"
I moaned, and then looked flushed and palpitant
On Love's rapt face, that frenzied flagellant
Wielding with zeal the welting golden thongs.





(The end)

Judgment Judgment

Judgment
Down the deep steps of stone through iron doorsI entered that red room and saw the rack,And round the walls I saw them sit in black,The immutable and urgent councillors.My heart was clotted with an old remorse,Despair a vulture fast upon my back.I saw my body like an empty sackTossed disarticulate on grated floors.But even a wilder wonder at this crimeTried in the dungeon of my own grim lifeWoke, as your memory awoke with tuneThat crazed the very walls. I stared through TimeLike to a man who stands with smoking knifeAbove his dead, and sees the rising moon.(The end)William Rose Benet's

Anomaly Anomaly

Anomaly
Men who are fain to change, look wizenedlyInto the flowing mirror of your thoughtAnd see on what strange reefs your joys are caughtAnd contemplate your vexed variety:Grief that was hooded for eternityCasting the stole for spangled domino,Awe on its pinnacle jigging heel and toe.Love laughing into hate and mockery.What shoots the warp to patterns that reblendAnd spread and fade,--and working out what end?In time of pain why be as volubleAs one who tells an endless useless sum,Yet simple clay, pallid and deaf and dumbThrough the one moment forging Heaven or Hell?(The end)William Rose Benet's poem: Anomaly
