    to me I see Oliver's prose far reaching from when he was on the Earth. yet from a spiritual sense yearning to be as else where as I. at home on the earth and seeking a greater mobility than the language of human can provide.

The Dorchester Giant

THERE was a giant in time of old,
A mighty one was he;
He had a wife, but she was a scold,
So he kept her shut in his mammoth fold;
And he had children three.

It happened to be an election day,
And the giants were choosing a king;
The people were not democrats then,
