Edna St. Vincent Millay (Эдна Сент-Винсент Миллей)


Sonnets 02: Into The Golden Vessel Of Great Song


Into the golden vessel of great song
Let us pour all our passion; breast to breast
Let other lovers lie, in love and rest;
Not we,—articulate, so, but with the tongue
Of all the world: the churning blood, the long
Shuddering quiet, the desperate hot palms pressed
Sharply together upon the escaping guest,
The common soul, unguarded, and grown strong.
Longing alone is singer to the lute;
Let still on nettles in the open sigh
The minstrel, that in slumber is as mute
As any man, and love be far and high,
That else forsakes the topmost branch, a fruit
Found on the ground by every passer-by.

  4. The Plaid Dress
  5. Sonnets 06: No Rose That In A Garden Ever Grew
