AN HONESTY OF THE BECOMES A NEED
An honesty of The becomes a need
If seek we explanation of what Time;
Since recognizing limit — as of rhyme —
Analogy presents its faithless creed.
Believe we Time to cede and too — to speed
Ahead of Now without so much as seam
Nor joint nor edge but flowing like a stream —
Or maybe as the tree emerge from seed.
The problem is too great for fourteen lines
To tell — be such but difficulty grand —
Since language — namely English — fail to give
The symbols for strange-things — the special signs
That might allow allusion to such band
Connect between that die and that life live.
