Ogden Nash

"I wish the world were a
little less mysterious,
because I do like to know
when I'm delirious"

i will wade out

i will wade out                         
till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers 
I will take the sun in my mouth 
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes to dash against darkness                                        
in the sleeping curves of my body 
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery with chasteness of sea-girls
Will i complete the mystery                                             
of my flesh I will rise                
After a thousand years 
And set my teeth in the silver of the moon

-e e cummings -
