    ‘Carnal Apple, Woman Filled, Burning Moon,’-Pablo Neruda

    Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon,
    dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light,
    what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars?
    What primal night does Man touch with his senses?
    Ay, Love is a journey through waters and stars,
    through suffocating air, sharp tempests of grain:
    Love is a war of lightning,
    and two bodies ruined by a single sweetness.
    Kiss by kiss I cover your tiny infinity,
    your margins, your rivers, your diminutive villages,
    and a genital fire, transformed by delight,
    slips through the narrow channels of blood
    to precipitate a nocturnal carnation,
    to be, and be nothing but light in the dark.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I'm a schizophrenic
    And so am I

    "I Am in Need of Music"

    I am in need of music that would flow
    Over my fretful, feeling fingertips,
    Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
    With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
    Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
    Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
    A song to fall like water on my head,
    And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

    There is a magic made by melody:
    A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
    Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
    To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
    And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
    Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.

    --Elizabeth Bishop

    "An Imperial Elegy"

    Not one corner of a foreign field
    But a span as wide as Europe;
    An appearance of a titan's grave,
    And the length thereof a thousand miles,
    It crossed all Europe like a mystic road,
    Or as the Spirits' Pathway lieth on the night.
    And I heard a voice crying
    This is the Path of Glory.

    "THE SECOND COMING"

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    --William Butler Yeats

    When I Heard the Learned Astronomer

    When I heard the learn'd astronomer,
    When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
    When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide,
    and measure them,
    When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with
    much applause in the lecture-room,
    How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
    Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
    In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
    Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
    Walt Whitman

    Guns N' Roses - Don't Cry (Original) Lyrics

    Talk to me softly
    There is something in your eyes
    Don't hang your head in sorrow
    And please don't cry
    I know how you feel inside I've
    I've been there before
    Somethin is changin' inside you
    And don't you know


    Don't you cry tonight
    I still love you baby
    Don't you cry tonight
    Don't you cry tonight
    There's a heaven above you baby
    And don't you cry tonight


    Give me a whisper
    And give me a sign
    Give me a kiss before you
    tell me goodbye
    Don't you take it so hard now
    And please don't take it so bad
    I'll still be thinkin' of you
    And the times we had...baby


    And don't you cry tonight
    Don't you cry tonight
    Don't you cry tonight
    There's a heaven above you baby
    And don't you cry tonight


    And please remember that I never lied
    And please remember
    how I felt inside now honey
    You gotta make it your own way
    But you'll be alright now sugar
    You'll feel better tomorrow
    Come the morning light now baby


    And don't you cry tonight
    And don't you cry tonight
    And don't you cry tonight
    There's a heaven above you baby
    And don't you cry
    Don't you ever cry
    Don't you cry tonight
    Baby maybe someday
    Don't you cry
    Don't you ever cry
    Don't you cry
    Tonight

    "The Street"

    Here is a long and silent street.
    I walk in blackness and I stumble and fall
    and rise, and I walk blind, my feet
    trampling the silent stones and the dry leaves.
    Someone behind me also tramples, stones, leaves:
    if I slow down, he slows;
    if I run, he runs I turn : nobody.
    Everything dark and doorless,
    only my steps aware of me,
    I turning and turning among these corners
    which lead forever to the street
    where nobody waits for, nobody follows me,
    where I pursue a man who stumbles
    and rises and says when he sees me : nobody.

    "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings"

    The free bird leaps
    on the back of the win
    and floats downstream
    till the current ends
    and dips his wings
    in the orange sun rays
    and dares to claim the sky.

    But a bird that stalks
    down his narrow cage
    can seldom see through
    his bars of rage
    his wings are clipped and
    his feet are tied
    so he opens his throat to sing.

    The caged bird sings
    with fearful trill
    of the things unknown
    but longed for still
    and is tune is heard
    on the distant hillfor the caged bird
    sings of freedom

    The free bird thinks of another breeze
    an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
    and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
    and he names the sky his own.

    But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
    his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
    his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
    so he opens his throat to sing

    The caged bird sings
    with a fearful trill
    of things unknown
    but longed for still
    and his tune is heard
    on the distant hill
    for the caged bird
    sings of freedom.

    --Maya Angelou
