Riddles

I war with the wind, with the waves I wrestle; I must battle with both when the bottom I seek, My strange habitation by surges o’er-roofed. I am strong in the strife, while still I remain; As soon as I stir, they are stronger than I. They wrench and they wrest, till I run from my foes; What was put in my keeping they carry away. If my back be not broken, I baffle them still. The rocks are my helpers, when hard I am pressed; Grimly I grip them. Guess what I’m called.

Beowulf Prologue



Beowulf: Prologue

So. The Spear-Danes in days gone by

and the kings who ruled them had courage and greatness.

We have heard of those princes’ heoric campaigns.

There was Shield Sheafson, scourge of many tribes,

a wrecker of mead-benches, rampaging among foes.

This terror of the hall-troops had come far.

A foundling to start with, he would flourish later on

as his powers waxed and his worth was proved.

In the end each clan on the outlying coasts

beyond the whale-road had to yield to him and begin to pay tribute. That was one good king

Translated by Seamus Heaney

The Prologue



The Prologue

When April with his showers sweet with fruit The drought of March has pierced unto the root And bathed each vein with liquor that has power To generate therein and sire the flower; When Zephyr also has, with his sweet breath, Quickened again, in every holt and heath, The tender shoots and buds, and the young sun Into the Ram one half his course has run, And many little birds make melody That sleep through all the night with open eye (So Nature pricks them on to ramp and rage)- Then do folk long to go on pilgrimage, And palmers to go seeking out strange strands, To distant shrines well known in sundry lands. And specially from every shire's end Of England they to Canterbury wend, The holy blessed martyr there to seek Who helped them when they lay so ill and sick.

Geoffrey Chaucer the Pilgrim the Poet

Saint Augustine

 

There liest thou little city of the Deep

And always hearest the unceasing sound

Both day & night in summer & in frost

The loud sea lashing thy resounding beach

Great ocean

The roar of waters on thy coral shore.

 

But in thy gentle clime

Even the rude sea forgets his savageness

Feels the ray of that benignant sun

And pours warm billows up the shelly shore.

O fair befall thee gentle town!

The prayer of those who thank thee for their life.

 

But much is here

That can beguile the months of banishment

Within the small peninsula of sand

Of present pleasure and romantic past

The faint traces of romantic things

The old land of America

I find in this nook of sand

The first footprints of that giant grown.

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1827)

Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862

  • Poet, philosopher, naturalist, abolitionist

  • Best known for his books, Walden and Civil Disobedience

Free Love

Free Love

by Henry D. Thoreau

MY love must be as free  As is the eagle's wing,  Hovering o'er land and sea  And every thing.

I must not dim my eye  In thy saloon,  I must not leave my sky  And nightly moon.

Be not the fowler's net  Which stays my flight,  And craftily is set  T' allure the sight,

But be the favoring gale  That bears me on,  And still doth fill my sail  When thou art gone.

I cannot leave my sky  For thy caprice,  True love would soar as high  As heaven is.

The eagle would not brook  Her mate thus won,  Who trained his eye to look  Beneath the sun.

I Hear America Singing

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,

Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,

The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,

The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,

The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,

The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,

The wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,

The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,

Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,

The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,

Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
