An Attempt to Celebrate


Celebrating myself,
I have put my blood in my glass
From which I made the orchestra
Of my letters and dots.
May I try dance?
Yes, I will get my letters ready
For a ballet of my red and white cells.
May I try death?
Yes, I will get my letter to be a green coffin
Borne by the bearded old men
To put in the marble palace.
I will be with them,
Around them, awaiting them.
May I try the tale?
Yes, but a tale without a beginning
Is only a myth.
And a myth without an end
Is only a superstition.
A superstition without a hope
Is only icons drop broken upon the heads.
May I try pennilessness?
May I sell my boyhood?
Yes, I have done.
And who bought it?
The slain Euphrates.
May I sell my love?
I have done.
And who bought it?
The women whose (Lo) is missing (ve),
Or whose (ve) is missing (Lo)
May I sell pleasure?
I have done.
And who bought it?
The toothless time.
May I sell night?
I have done.
And who bought it?
The frightened morning.
Celebrating my blood,
Being happy with it,
I have crowned it as a king of words,
A sultan of letters,
And an emperor of dots.
I granted him great feathered - dreams,
Peacocks, and mythical orders nobody got before.
And when everything got perfectly ready
Except the music of greatest happiness,
I shot my blood.
When my blood twisted in its blood
And started to draw the thread of blood
Very painfully,
The horrible scene astonished me
So I laughed, laughed,
Wept,
And died!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
