That dawn lifting light to us, O never shall darkness own. or came in echoes of that living anvil forming him, calling him: be loud in me, love O loud: until his thunders owned her breast utterly.  O from that shaken and living tower, what music flies: my soul does magnify who makes my body great. or came in a tide, riding her pure lands under — tender, O living rain: he fell to her to rise in hundredfolds up from her secret garden. But mostly in need, asking her flesh to clothe him. O because love ran uncontrollably to that meeting, from her arms, her breast, He walks into our lives.

He will not make turmoil: one child more led by his father's hand into a park of children: one voice adds little: one voice to a choir, another among the swings, linked in a ring­around.  Never to say Children: I am all your bloom and odor and starlight.  In three seasons — summer was her angel, fall bent her boughs Page 13 crone winter mothered her maidenhead — she stitched Him in and out by the nodding fire: O heartbeat soft as snow on high snow falling, vein as the veined grape delicate, my body's shuttle closes you in white linen.

No god but Caesar says the gold eye that lights, like hell nothing to buy.  Caesar weeps at last at last, long lives.  at the false dawn that wakened him for death. Page 41 How small a thing is hope — hairspring body, mind's eye, and all endangered. Events Events are orthodoxy, he would say, submitting like any son. The way a fruit tastes of itself he tasted sacrifice. No thirst but for that cup engendering thirst. Credo is event, would say to a brother's face by birth or death brought near — a descending god he saw, a god sprung from his tears.
