Recalling a melodious pitch,
or forms of movement, thus
Swarms of creatures the mind adventures,
the swooning of the thrush

And while I beckon hitherto
ineffable thoughts I ponder:
the motive of a person’s word and deed
when that one says, what’s wrong dear?

Further, have I not known
the brilliance of mind on earth
The one that makes me move in glory,
and relinquish undue search?

If not, I will declare
I must continue onward
And love that which is from above—
those objects and things we ponder

Memories that wander
stay of place in some sweet nexus
a taste of pondering eminence
a taste of Nature’s Sexes
And while I sit, I wait
for Heaven’s inspiration
to be greater than the vile amorous
to rejoice in my long sation

Memories that wander
stay of place in some sweet nexus.
