“O thou undaunted daughter of desires!
By all thy dower of lights and fires;
By all the eagle in thee, all the dove;
By all thy lives and deaths of love;
By thy large draughts of intellectual day,
And by thy thirsts of love more large then they;
By all thy brim-filld Bowls of fierce desire,
By thy last Mornings draught of liquid fire;
By the full kingdom of that final kiss
That seizd thy parting Soul, and seald thee his;”
—Richard Crashaw (1613?1649)
“I am haunted by interrupted acts,
introspective as a leper, enchanted
by a repulsive clew,
a gross and fugitive movement of the limbs.
Is this the love that shook the lights to flame?”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
