Poetry Wednesday: Twittering through the Woods

Twittering through the Woods

 More than all the print I have read in my life,
 At home in the fleet of ice-boats, she
 Unscrews the doors themselves from their jambs!
 Resisting anything better than her own university, she shares an
 Endless unfolding of words of ages, and if
 Each and all be aware I sit content, because there is
 Never any more inception than there is now.

 Just twittering through the woods. “Smile
 O voluptuous cool-breath’d earth!” and
“Hurrah for positive science!” Cheerfully take it
 Now. With behavior lawless as
 Snow-flakes, the spinning-girl retreats, scooting
 Obliquely. We chant the chant,
“Never enough! enough! enough!”
