Poem of Women.

2 — Poem of Women.

UNFOLDED only out of the folds of the  
 woman, man comes unfolded, and is always  
 to come unfolded,
Unfolded only out of the superbest woman of the  
 earth is to come the superbest man of the  
Unfolded out of the friendliest woman is to come  
 the friendliest man,
Unfolded only out of the perfect body of a  
 woman, can a man be formed of perfect body,
Unfolded only out of the inimitable poem of  
 the woman can come the poems of man —  
 only thence have my poems come,
Unfolded out of the strong and arrogant woman  
 I love, only thence can appear the strong  
 and arrogant man I love,
Unfolded by brawny embraces from the well- 
 muscled woman I love, only thence come the  
 brawny embraces of the man,
Unfolded out of the folds of the woman's brain,  
 come all the folds of the man's brain, duly  
  [ begin page 102 ]ppp.00237.110.jpg Unfolded out of the justice of the woman, all jus- 
 tice is unfolded,
Unfolded out of the sympathy of the woman is all  
A man is a great thing upon the earth, and  
 through eternity—but every jot of the great- 
 ness of man is unfolded out of woman,
First the man is shaped in the woman, he can  
 then be shaped in himself.
