Ships and Lovers (Classic Reprint)
Would you walk barefoot on ice to have one ﬂower, Tossed from her distant hand as courtesy?
Would you climb to heaven only to hear her name Chimed by the angels like a sacred tune, Or walk because of her, fearless through hell? He rose, and his wrists tightened: I have done this.
I have gone down to the last icy circle Of my own mind, and painted what I saw. I have ﬂown higher than ever a song ﬂew Or a sun-seeking lark at break of day.
I have stood before the pearly throne of God And touched the snaky scales of the Lord of 111.
