the smile on her face was the deadest thing, alive enough to have strength to die
Unscrew the locks from the doors! Unscrew the doors themselves from their jambs!
self-yeast of spirit, a dull dough sours
When it comes, the landscape listens, shadows hold their breath
I should have thought, in a dream you would have brought, some lovely, perilous thing
her hair over her arms and her arms full of flowers
I should have called it something, you somehow haven't to deserve.
He did not love me living, but once dead, he pitied me, and very sweet it is, to know he is still warm though I am cold.
two by two into the ark of the ache of it
We were very tired, we were very merry, we had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
and I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow
