how reach of mind,

how reach of mind,

                singe’d on thought,

                               reaches for lids,

                                           for eyes,

                                           for brow’n’cheek,

                                           for overflowen’d reservoir untouched:for throat,

                                                                                                 for breath,

                                                                                                 for words,

                                                                                                 for lung,

                                                                                                 for air upon wide-mouth gasping

oh, to trouth in bend of eyes,

                              to dampen these flamen’d roots grown inward

                                                                                       in heat of skin

                                                                                                  and all those ash’ed-streams

                                                                                                                      a’burn left raging
