Keith Douglas Quotes

    The Knife

    Can I explain this to you? Your eyes
    are entrances the mouths of caves
    I issue from wonderful interiors
    upon a blessed sea and a fine day,
    from inside these caves I look and dream.

    Your hair explicable as a waterfall
    in some black liquid cooled by legend
    fell across my thought in a moment
