    to me I see Oliver's prose far reaching from when he was on the Earth. yet from a spiritual sense yearning to be as else where as I. at home on the earth and seeking a greater mobility than the language of human can provide.

To an Insect

I love to hear thine earnest voice,
Wherever thou art hid,
Thou testy little dogmatist,
Thou pretty Katydid!
Thou mindest me of gentlefolks,-
Old gentlefolks are they,-
Thou say'st an undisputed thing
In such a solemn way.
