I never saw a man who looked/ With such a wistful eye/ Upon that little tent of blue/ Which prisoners call the sky
In the room the women come and go/ Talking of Michelangelo.
It little profits that an idle king,/ By this still hearth, among these barren crags
The night is shattered and she is not with me
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes/ He star'd at the Pacific
My candle burns at both ends;/ It will not last the night;/ But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-/ It gives a lovely light!
Theirs not to make reply,/ Theirs not to reason why,/ Theirs but to do & die,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,/ And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son!
Not one of all the purple Host/ Who took the Flag today/ Can tell the definition/ So clear of victory
Call the roller of big cigars,/ The muscular one, and bid him whip
Turning and turning in the widening gyre/ The Falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart
Keeping time, time, time,/ In a sort of Runic rhyme,/ To the tintinabulation that so musically wells
Time's winged chariot hurrying near;/ And yonder all before us lie/ Deserts of vast eternity.
I met a traveler from an antique land, Who said: 'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone/ Stand in the desert.'
One shade the more, one ray the less,/ Had half impair'd the nameless grace/ Which waves in every raven tress,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,/ And drunk the milk of Paradise.
Sophocles long ago/ Heard it on the Ægean, and it brought/ Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow/ Of human misery;
Life is too strong for you-/ It takes life to love Life.
Yet may I by no means my wearied mind/ Draw from the deer, but as she fleeth afore/ Fainting I follow.
If ever two were one, then surely we./ If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;/ If ever wife was happy in a man,/ Compare with me ye women if you can.
