"Earth laughs in flowers, to see her boastful boys, Earth-proud, proud of the earth which is not theirs; Who steer the plough, but cannot steer their feet Clear of the grave." HAMATREYA ~Ralph Waldo Emerson 1876 Graphic design by Sweet William, on Etsy.
Rilke to Marina Tsvetaeva jealous of Boris Pasternak • We touch from afar. But how? With airborne brushes our beating wings stir each other. Poets live alone. Sometimes another one comes forth, one who bears what we have borne.
