AD INFINITUM, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Still I bring flowers
Last Line: To speak a lesser thing.
Subject(s): Flowers

Still I bring flowers
Although you fling them at my feet
Until none stays
That is not struck across with wounds:
Flowers and flowers
That you may break them utterly
As you have always done.

Sure happily
I still bring flowers, flowers,
Knowing how all
Are crumpled in your praise
And may not live
To speak a lesser thing.
