And what is life?
13 The negro holds firmly the reins of his four horses, the block swags underneath on its tied-over chain, The negro that drives the long dray of the stone-yard, steady and tall he stands pois'd on one leg on the string-piece, His blue shirt exposes.
16 I am of old and young, of the foolish as much as the wise, Regardless of others, ever regardful of others, Maternal as well as paternal, a child as well as a man, Stuff'd with online casino trick ohne download the stuff that is coarse and stuff'd with the.Something I cannot see puts upward libidinous prongs, Seas of bright juice suffuse heaven.I am enamour'd of growing out-doors, Of men that live among cattle or taste spielautomaten gratis spielen ohne anmeldung of the ocean or woods, Of the builders and steerers of ships and the wielders of axes and mauls, and the drivers of horses, I can eat and sleep with them.Earth of the limpid gray of clouds brighter and clearer for my sake!I hasten to inform him or her it is just as lucky to die, and I know.
That I could forget the trickling tears and the blows of the bludgeons and hammers!In the houses the dishes and fare and furniture-but the host and hostess, and the look out of their eyes?All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses, And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.Gentlemen, to you the first honors always!You seem to look for something at my hands, Say, old top-knot, what do you want?You do not need to login to vote.Or I guess it is the handkerchief of the Lord, A scented gift and remembrancer designedly dropt, Bearing the owner's name someway in the corners, that we may see and remark, and say Whose?I merely stir, press, feel with my fingers, and am happy, To touch my person to some one else's is about as much as I can stand.Why should I wish to see God better than this day?You will hardly know who I am or what I mean, But I shall be good health to you nevertheless, And filter and fibre your blood.
Ah the homeliest of them is beautiful to her.
