Intro to Lit
Letthe day grow on you upwardthrough your feet, the vegetal knuckles,
to your knees of stone, until by evening you are a black tree; feel, with evening,the swift thicken your hair,the new moon rising out of your forehead,and the moonlit veins of silverrunning from your armpitslike rivulets under white leaves.Sleep, as ants

5How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
6Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
7In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
8Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
