Calamus 26

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


WE two boys together clinging, One the other never leaving, Up and down the roads going—North and South  
 excursions making,
Power enjoying—elbows stretching—fingers clutch- 
Armed and fearless—eating, drinking, sleeping, lov- 
No law less than ourselves owning—sailing, soldier- 
 ing, thieving, threatening,
Misers, menials, priests alarming—air breathing, 
 water drinking, on the turf or the sea-beach  
With birds singing—With fishes swimming—With  
 trees branching and leafing,
Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking, 
 feebleness chasing,
Fulfilling our foray.

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.
