Earth! My Likeness!

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


EARTH! my likeness! Though you look so impassive, ample and spheric  
I now suspect that is not all; I now suspect there is something fierce in you, eligible  
 to burst forth;
For an athlete is enamour'd of me—and I of him, But toward him there is something fierce and terrible  
 in me, eligible to burst forth,
I dare not tell it in words—not even in these songs.

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.
