TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. NEARER THAN EVER NOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: If I should be taken up into thee, o blue blue sky
Last Line: Form.
Subject(s): Love; Nature


IF I should be taken up into Thee, O blue blue sky—to pass the bounds
of myself, to share thy life, O Nature:
Pouring pouring upon all the words which now are distilled only painfully
from me—pressed out, expressed—
To mingle my breath with Thy breath, my body and its liquids with the earth
and the sea—losing my mortal outline in Thine:
Ah! unto those that I love swiftly running I would become their life,
Nearer would I touch them then, than ever now that I am prisoned in this
form.
