Freedom at last!by Edward Carpenter
Original Language English
Freedom at last!
Long sought, long prayed for - ages and ages long:
The burden to which I continually return, seated here thick-booted and obvious yet dead and buried and passed into heaven, unsearchable;
(How know you indeed but what I have passed into you?)
And Joy, beginning but without ending-the journey of journeys - Thought laid quietly aside:
These things I, writing, translate for you - I wipe a mirror and place it in your hands.
|-- from Towards Democracy, by Edward Carpenter|
