The Steps - Poem by Paul Valery

 

Your steps, children of my silence,
Holily, slowly placed,
Towards the bed of my vigilance
Proceed dumb and frozen.

Nobody pure, divine shade,
That they are soft, your steps selected!
Gods!… all the gifts which I guess
Come to me on these naked feet!

If, of your advanced lips,
You prepare to alleviate it,
An inhabitant of my thoughts
The food of a kiss,

Does not hasten this tender act,
To be soft and not to be not?
Because I lived to await you,
And my heart was only your steps.

Song Of The Open Road - Poem by Ogden Nash

 

I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree
Indeed, unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all.

Reprise - Poem by Ogden Nash

 

Geniuses of countless nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I've married one of Shakespeare's dreams.

First child.... second child  by Ogden Nash

 

 

FIRST

Be it a girl, or one of the boys,
It is scarlet all over its avoirdupois,
It is red, it is boiled; could the obstetrician
Have possibly been a lobstertrician?
His degrees and credentials were hunky-dory,
But how's for an infantile inventory?
Here's the prodigy, here's the miracle!
Whether its head is oval or spherical,
You rejoice to find it has only one,
Having dreaded a two-headed daughter or son;
Here's the phenomenon all complete,
It's got two hands, it's got two feet,
Only natural, but pleasing, because
For months you have dreamed of flippers or claws.
Furthermore, it is fully equipped:
Fingers and toes with nails are tipped;
It's even got eyes, and a mouth clear cut;
When the mouth comes open the eyes go shut,
When the eyes go shut, the breath is loosed
And the presence of lungs can be deduced.
Let the rockets flash and the cannon thunder,
This child is a marvel, a matchless wonder.
A staggering child, a child astounding,
Dazzling, diaperless, dumbfounding,
Stupendous, miraculous, unsurpassed,
A child to stagger and flabbergast,
Bright as a button, sharp as a thorn,
And the only perfect one ever born.


SECOND

Arrived this evening at half-past nine.
Everybody is doing fine.
Is it a boy, or quite the reverse?
You can call in the morning and ask the nurse. :(

By a 17 year old girl named Chanie Gorkin (Brooklyn, NYC):

 

 

Today was the absolute worst day ever

 

And don't try to convince me that

 

There's something good in every day

 

Because, when you take a closer look,

 

This world is a pretty evil place.

 

Even if

 

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

 

Satisfaction and happiness don't last.

 

And it's not true that

 

It's all in the mind and heart

 

Because

 

True happiness can be obtained

 

Only if one's surroundings are good

 

It's not true that good exists

 

I'm sure you can agree that

 

The reality

 

Creates

 

My attitude

 

It's all beyond my control.

 

And you'll never in a million years hear me say that

 

Today was a good day

 

Now read from the bottom to top.

"A Kind Of Magic"
 

It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
A kind of magic,

One dream, one soul, one prize,
One goal, one golden glance of what should be,

It's a kind of magic,

One shaft of light that shows the way,
No mortal man can win this day,

It's a kind of magic,

The bell that rings inside your mind,
Is a challenging the doors of time,

It's a kind of magic,

The waiting seems eternity,
The day will dawn of sanity,

Is this a kind of magic,
(It's a kind of magic)
There can be only one,
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done,

This flame that burns inside of me,
I'm hearing secret harmonies

It's a kind of magic,

The bell that rings inside your mind,
Is challenging the doors of time,

It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,

This rage that lasts a thousand years,
Will soon be will soon be,
Will soon be done,

This is (this is) a kind (a kind) of magic (yeah),
There can be only one one one one,
This rage that lasts a thousand years,
Will soon be done, done,

Magic, it's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic, magic, magic, magic, magic,

It's magic,

It's a kind of magic.

It is everywhere

and inside

time

is going on

it is not running

I am,

I stop for a while

and I  take

the moment

to be

at least

in sintony

with

the mistery

It is a good auspice.

It is not what it seems,

it is not what it seems,

why do you look so scared?,

why do you look so scared?,

take your life as it is,

take your life as it is,

it 's the key for joy,

it's the key for joy,

I am on this wave's path,

you are so beautiful.

Don't lose yourself,

Don't lose yourself.

I see from far,

I see from far,

I see from the high

of my experience.

You are so right

as you are,

don't miss yourself

bye,

don't miss yourself

bye

bye.

Don't miss yourself

Goodbye.

 

<_<

I want to dedicate this tune to Swedish U2 fans.

Hope you enjoy it.

going down the street

you

are so incredibly smart,

I look so shy

and beautiful at your eyes,

I can see it when I look at you,

please stay so close

to me

all the hours you can.

I love everything  you say,

because I love

your voice,

oh my dear fellow,

oh my dear fellow,

be the light of my day,

as long as you can.

Oh my dear mate,

oh my dear mate,

you and I are something

you might know.

Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride-
Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.

Ah, less- less bright
The stars of the night
Than the eyes of the radiant girl!
That the vapor can make
With the moon-tints of purple and pearl,
Can vie with the modest Eulalie's most unregarded curl-
Can compare with the bright-eyed Eulalie's most humble and careless
curl.

Now Doubt- now Pain
Come never again,
For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,
And all day long
Shines, bright and strong,
Astarte within the sky,
While ever to her dear Eulalie upturns her matron eye-
While ever to her young Eulalie upturns her violet eye.

 

Eulalie

 

Edgar Allan Poe

Slumber Song by Rainer Maria Rilke
 

Some day, if I should ever lose you,
will you be able then to go to sleep
without me softly whispering above you
like night air stirring in the linden tree?

Without my waking here and watching
and saying words as tender as eyelids
that come to rest weightlessly upon your breast,
upon your sleeping limbs, upon your lips?

Without my touching you and leaving you
alone with what is yours, like a summer garden
that is overflowing with masses
of melissa and star-anise?


Translated by Albert Ernest Flemming

 

 

Das XX. SonettDir aber, Herr, o was weih ich dir, sag,
der das Ohr den Geschöpfen gelehrt? -
Mein Erinnern an einen Frühlingstag,
seinen Abend, in Russland -, ein Pferd...
Herüber vom Dorf kam der Schimmel allein,
an der vorderen Fessel den Pflock,
um die Nacht auf den Wiesen allein zu sein;
wie schlug seiner Mähne Gelock

an den Hals im Takte des Übermuts,
bei dem grob gehemmten Galopp.
Wie sprangen die Quellen des Rossebluts!

Der fühlte die Weiten, und ob!
Der sang und der horte -, dein Sagenkreis
war in ihm geschlossen.
            Sein Bild: ich weih's.
 
Rainer Maria Rilke
 
These are better indeed! :)
