Herbert Morris

Editor's Not: TIm magazines Poetry and Accent, and fhe Kan Kan-yen,
yen, Kan-yen, Parit Sewanee and Western Reviews among other have
published the work of young New Yorker Herbert Morris. ;


Five workmen hired here to shovel dirt
have passed among them some milk-bottle of
cool water which 1 felt flowed more like love,
a drinking whose raw beauty fully hurt.
Each mouth torched where the other four had been:
that jf itselt spoke such humanity
s to have mah it inescapably
devotions of my own I struggled in.
Imagine that ptxe structure on the day
as lemons on a beach, a house of sand,
a coolness in the desert that one's hand
beautifully caused to blossom from decay.
That was the way, that was the wealth of way
.they spent and went in water man to man,
common and strong and world to understand.
That was their way and this is whit we pay
in learning understanding from those five:
envy that summer touches them to thirst
for sifts of fiark-'ot water, and this first
sheer pain that drinking means to be alive

The Br.ahms

Leaflight to lamplight blind with so much sighi,
turn pages for me, mot'est with delight: .
Scarlatti through the morning, Brahms by night.
Lteht me the pages fired by your hands :
brighter than all the lamplight understands
' and quite beyond what melody demands.
Higher than candelabra deep as psalms,
I'll play the long and darkest songs of Brahms:.
what more is evening than what night becalms?
Starlight and moonlight quiet at your throat, t
we'll weave the strands of music tike a coat
brilliant and warm about us, note for note.
These. are the gifts I mustered in this room,
not sonatinas nor same rigadoon.
but Brahms tonight. Schumann this afternoon.
These are the sounds, I mastered for your ear,
profoundest phrase and chording coming clear
above the lovely Brahms which you could hear.
This is the self I sookr from sheaves you turned,
seated beside me where the lamolight yearned
richer and truer toward the wealth you burned.
Twilight to midnight, turn me pages long:
hojr-Ute it is, hut, bone for bone, prolong
the whiteness of your body in the song.

The North of Wales

I met the yawning of my appetite
this morning when they entered and we' spoke,
music and. early waking and the sea.
Ifcd you vast beaches in the north of Wales?:
purest wild strips of inlet where the sand
sank to a loam that richly fed green fir,
and waters of a midnight mooned and starred
beyond the mind's small vision of a light.
I groomed the splendor of my hungering
and hungered splendored in the spread of it
this morning where they laid me ample food,
youngness ind blonde with strength and that sheer -line
of eye, ot lip, of liquid clearest hand,
that flickered roaring from their Maze of health,
high fires of early wakings by the sea.
So that 1 saved my remnant bitter tea,
my driest toast, that it enable me
to feel them longer and luxuriate,
