Part Five: The Single Hound


BLOOM upon the Mountain, stated,
Blameless of a name.
Efflorescence of a Sunset—
Reproduced, the same.
Seed, had I, my purple sowing        5
Should endow the Day,
Not a tropic of the twilight
Show itself away.
Who for tilling, to the Mountain
Come, and disappear—        10
Whose be Her renown, or fading,
Witness, is not here.
While I state—the solemn petals
Far as North and East,
Far as South and West expanding,        15
Culminate in rest.
And the Mountain to the Evening
Fit His countenance,
Indicating by no muscle
The Experience.        20
