Of all the needs

There are none that are imagined

Of all the fires that ever burn

yours was the only one of worth

.

Have you forgotten what we were like then?*

When the day came fat with an apple in its mouth*

.

It is no use to worry about time,

we know the length that we have lived

.

All the pastures and the ice and water*

The high roads that I have come to know

.

I would not want to be faster or greener than now*

* Taken from Frank O’Hara’s poem, Animals
