Page 33 Man, wife, wearing for better for worse, the other's flesh, rent and patch: I do. Bridal gown is yellow as bone, raveled like youth out many a gay and slower mile: stained bowler and waistcoat, a rusty charmer. Yet all days since, I see visible things of this world, faultless and heartening, go down on knee before, fashion music toward, measure hope and decline upon the least audible heartbeat of this holy darkness: I love you. A Statue of the Blessed Virgin, Carved In Wood Wood is noble when it forgets resemblance and like the first idea of tree stands straight up and awaits creation.

The way it endured, time would have bruised his fist in striking it. What time had done, breaking the bones at knee and wrist, washing the features blank as quarry stone, turning the legs to spindles, stealing the eyes was only to plant forever its one great gesture deeper in furrow, heave it high above rooftops. Where time had done his clumsy worst, cracking its heart, hollowing its breast inexorably, — he opened this Burning­glass to hold the huge landscape: crops, houses and men, in Its fire.

Love Is A Difference Water is the shaping form whose blade cuts fish to jeweled finish. Out of native air we, soon lost. Page 34 But lends reason to, whispers here and now to air cut to a profile: as a bell lifts to pour on 4 winds their christening: or majestic birds, daring a perilous clearing, teach light its spectrum. Strength issues in marvels: crucial delicate finger at flute stop. Hill easing itself like tiger's body, around one blind tuft of violets. A spring after, felled oak, one heartbeat unspent: one handful of leaves in a dead hand.
