The Eve Of Revolution

The trumpets of the four winds of the world From the ends of the earth blow battle; the night heaves,
With breasts palpitating and wings refurled, With passion of couched limbs, as one who

Death And Birth

Death and birth should dwell not near together:
Wealth keeps house not, even for shame, with dearth:
