Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind doth move
Silently, invisibly.
W. B.

A vast similitude interlocks all,
All spheres, grown, ungrown, small, large, suns, moons, planets,
All distances of place however wide,
All distances of time, all inanimate forms,
All souls, all living bodies though they be ever so different, or in different worlds,
All gaseous, watery, vegetable, mineral processes, the fishes, the brutes,
All nations, colors, barbarisms, civilizations, languages,
All identities that have existed or may exist on this globe, or any globe,
All lives and deaths, all of the past, present, future,
This vast similitude spans them, and always has spann’d,
And shall forever span them and compactly hold and enclose them.
W. W.

Where “I” does not exist, nor “you”,
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
P. N.
