MANA ABODA, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Mana aboda, whose bent form
Last Line: "josephs all, not tall enough to try."
Alternate Author Name(s): Hulme, T. E.
Subject(s): Beauty

Beauty is the marking-time, the stationary vibration, the feigned ecstasy of an arrested impulse
unable to reach its natural end.

Mana Aboda, whose bent form
The sky in arched circle is,
Seems ever for an unknown grief to mourn.
Yet on a day I heard her cry:
"I weary of the roses and the singing poets --
Josephs all, not tall enough to try."
