My life closed twice
before its close
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
a third even to me
So huge, so hopeless to conceive,
As these that twice befell
Parting is all we know of Heaven
and all we need of hell
David also quite likes Sydney Lanier’s “Marshes of Glynn”
Inward and outward to northward and southward the beach-lines linger and curl
As a silver-wrought garment that clings to and follows the firm sweet limbs of a girl.
