My Poems

Oh! Friend! Do Not Twist Your Knife So Hard!

Selfish Gain, No Other

The Variety of Days 

Song of the Happy Engineer

On Wings of Fire 

The Armies of the Lost 

Ethereal Knack 

Song of the Absolute 

The Unkown Way 

When the Time Comes  

Before Men Descended from the Trees to Walk Across the Grassy Plains

I am an Apple 

The Infinite Forms Which Perfection Takes 


And Then Enander Sang 

The World 

Bird of Paradise 

There is Tattered Lace Upon the Breast of My Loved One

Cruelty Was the Only Thing She Knew 

Words to Fill an Empty House 

At Evening 

I Am Older Than This Room 

To Whom It May Concern 

A Place Not Far Away
