Treasure Island

H. D.


  • ''he had crowded the city so full
    that men could not grasp beauty,
    beauty was over them,
    through them, about them,
    no crevice unpacked with honey,
    rare, measureless.''
    H.D. (1886-1961), U.S. poet and fiction writer. "Cities," lines 30-35 (1916). "He" is "the maker of cities."

At Baia

I should have thought
in a dream you would have brought
some lovely, perilous thing,
orchids piled in a great sheath,
as who would say (in a dream),
"I send you this,
who left the blue veins
of your throat unkissed."

[Hata Bildir]
