In the deep cave of the heart

Resultado de imagen para edward carpenter

In the deep cave of the heart, far down,

Running under the outward shows of the world

and of people,

Running under geographies, continents, under the fields

and the roots of the grasses and trees, under the little

thoughts and dreams of men, and the history of races,

Deep, far down,

I see feel and hear wondrous and divine things.

Voices and faces are there; arms of lovers, known and

unknown, reach forward and fold me;

Words float, and fragrance of Time ascends, and Life

ever circling.

Edward Carpenter. 1912. Towards Democracy.
