I had read in books that art is not easy
But no one warned that the mind repeats
In its ignorance the vision of others. I am still
the black swan of trespass on alien waters.

I Have Never Seen "Volcanoes"
I have never seen "Volcanoes"
But, when Travellers tell
How those old phlegmatic mountains
Usually so still
Bear within appalling Ordnance,
Fire, and smoke, and gun,
Taking Villages for breakfast,
And appalling Men
If the stillness is Volcanic
In the human face
When upon a pain Titanic
Features keep their place
If at length the smouldering anguish
Will not overcome
And the palpitating Vineyard
In the dust, be thrown?
If some loving Antiquary,
On Resumption Morn,
Will not cry with joy "Pompeii"!
To the Hills return!
