SOCIETY AND SOLITUDE
SEYD melted the days like cups
Or gleam which use can paint on steel,
Princely women hard to please,
And etiquette of gentilesse.
But when the mate of the snow and wind,
Him wood-gods fed with honey wild
In caves and hollow trees he crept
The winds took flesh, the mountains talked,
And he the bard, a crystal soul,
Sphered and concentric with the whole.
