EVERYBODY NEEDS A ROCK - ENGLISH : BYRD BAYLOR : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive
[See also: https://books.google.com/books?id=EWH-IfBQ-B0C ]


When you are looking
at rocks
don’t let

mothers or fathers
or sisters or brothers
or even best friends
to you.

You should choose
a rock

when everything
is quiet.

Don’t let dogs bark
at you

or bees buzz
at you.

But if they do,


(The worst thing you can do is go
rock hunting when you are worried.)"

Under Which Lyre by W H Auden
Thou shalt not be on friendly terms
With guys in advertising firms,
Nor speak with such
As read the Bible for its prose,
Nor, above all, make love to those
Who wash too much.

August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.

The Kaleidoscope: or, Literary and scientific mirror (1824) — Google Books
Know'st thou the land where the lemon-trees bloom
Where the gold orange glows in the deep thicket's gloom
Where a wind ever soft from the blue heaven blows
And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose?
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

In the Desert by Stephen Crane — Poetry Foundation
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter— bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

"I saw a man pursuing the horizon" by Stephen Crane — Poetry Foundation

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
“It is futile,” I said,
“You can never —”

“You lie,” he cried,
And ran on.

A Man Said to the Universe by Stephen Crane — Poetry Foundation
A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.”
