Ode to Reading


words take up the space
in the quiet lanes of the mind
images sprout like whispers
a heart is stirred the rustle
of bamboo leaves in a garden
of spring solitude
the writer is a world away
as we walk a luxuriant path
of dream and reality

Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
