    The Puritan's Ballad

    My love came up from Barnegat,
    The sea was in his eyes;
    He trod as softly as a cat
    And told me terrible lies.

    His hair was yellow as new-cut pine
    In shavings curled and feathered;
    I thought how silver it would shine
    By cruel winters weathered.

    But he was in his twentieth year,
    Ths time I'm speaking of;
    We were head over heels in love with fear
    And half a-feared of love.

    My hair was piled in a copper crown --
    A devilish living thing --
    And the tortise-shell pins fell down, fell down,
    When that snake uncoiled to spring.

    His feet were used to treading a gale
    And balancing thereon;
    His face was as brown as a foreign sail
    Threadbare against the sun.

    His arms were thick as hickory logs
    Whittled to little wrists;
    Strong as the teeth of a terrier dog
    Were the fingers of his fists.

    Within his arms I feared to sink
    Where lions shook their manes,
    And dragons drawn in azure ink
    Lept quickened by his veins.

    Dreadful his strength and length of limb
    As the sea to foundering ships;
    I dipped my hands in love for him
    No deeper than the tips.

    But our palms were welded by a flame
    The moment we came to part,
    And on his knuckles I read my name
    Enscrolled with a heart.

    And something made our wills to bend,
    As wild as trees blown over;
    We were no longer friend and friend,
    But only lover and lover.

    "In seven weeks or seventy years --
    God grant it may be sooner! --
    I'll make a hankerchief for you
    From the sails of my captain's schooner.

    We'll wear our loves like wedding rings
    Long polished to our touch;
    We shall be busy with other things
    And they cannot bother us much.

    When you are skimming the wrinkled cream
    And your ring clinks on the pan,
    You'll say to yourself in a pensive dream,
    'How wonderful a man!'

    When I am slitting a fish's head
    And my ring clanks on the knife,
    I'll say with thanks as a prayer is said,
    'How beautiful a wife!'

    And I shall fold my decorous paws
    In velvet smooth and deep,
    Like a kitten that covers up its claws
    To sleep and sleep and sleep.

    Like a little blue pigeon you shall bow
    Your bright alarming crest;
    In the crook of my arm you'll lay your brow
    To rest and rest and rest.

    Will he never come back from Barnegat
    With thunder in his eyes,
    Treading as soft as a tiger cat,
    To tell me terrible lies? read more »

    Fifty Words for Snow

    In the arctic wastes where the Inuit tribe hunts caribou and fights to survive,
    I have been told since long ago that tribe has fifty words for “snow”
    That seemed superfluous to me- Fifty words for one commodity!
    If I was born an Eskimo, I’d have fifty words to learn and know read more »

    Goodbye, My Course

    Father, hear, this is truth, I tried doing best,
    Although it was like mountain-climb, with no ropes to rest,
    By having started longing course, and then killed with hate,
    The people whom I gave my sweat, had burned my dreams, my fate. read more »
