Pàgina 64 - From me to thee glad serenades, Dances for thee I propose saluting thee, adornments and feastings for thee, And the sights of the open landscape and the high-spread sky are fitting, And life and the fields, and the huge and thoughtful night. The night in silence under many a star, The ocean shore and the husky whispering wave whose voice I know, And the soul turning to thee O vast and well-veil'd death, And the body gratefully nestling close to thee.
Pàgina 60 - Ah, Love ! could thou and I with Fate conspire To grasp this sorry Scheme of things entire, Would we not shatter it to bits — and then Remould it nearer to the heart's desire...
Pàgina 63 - Prais'd be the fathomless universe, For life and joy, and for objects and knowledge curious, And for love, sweet love — but praise! praise! praise! For the sure-enwinding arms of cool-enfolding death. Dark mother always gliding near with soft feet, Have none chanted for thee a chant of fullest welcome? Then I chant it for thee, I glorify thee above all, I bring thee a song that when thou must indeed come, come unfalteringly.
Pàgina 63 - Come lovely and soothing death, Undulate round the world, serenely arriving, arriving, In the day, in the night, to all, to each, Sooner or later delicate death.
Pàgina 3 - Never the spirit was born ; the spirit shall cease to be never ; Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams ! Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit forever ; Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems...
Pàgina 37 - neath a curtain of translucent dew, Bathed in the rays of the great setting flame, Hesperus with the host of heaven came; And, lo! Creation widened in man's view. Who could have thought such darkness lay concealed Within thy beams, O Sun? or who could find, Whilst fly and leaf and insect stood revealed, That to such countless orbs thou mad'st us blind? Why do we then shun Death with anxious strife? If Light can thus deceive, wherefore not Life?
Pàgina 64 - Laved in the flood of thy bliss O death. From me to thee glad serenades, Dances for thee I propose saluting thee, adornments and f eastings for thee, And the sights of the open landscape and the high-spread sky are fitting, And life and the fields, and the huge and thoughtful night.
Pàgina 58 - Pater ipse colendi Haud facilem esse viam voluit, primusque per artem Movit agros curis acuens mortalia corda, Nee torpere gravi passus sua regna veterno.
Pàgina 63 - For life and joy, and for objects and knowledge curious; And for love, sweet love — But praise! O praise and praise, For the sure-enwinding arms of cool-enfolding Death. Dark Mother, always gliding near, with soft feet, Have none chanted for thee a chant of fullest welcome? Then I chant it for thee — I glorify thee above all; I bring thee a song that, when thou must indeed come, come unfalteringly.
Pàgina 63 - Then I chant it for thee, I glorify thee above all, I bring thee a song that when thou must indeed come, come unfalteringly. Approach strong deliveress, When it is so, when thou hast taken them I joyously sing the dead, Lost in the loving floating ocean of thee, Loved in the flood of thy bliss, O death.
