We two boys together clinging

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 clutching,
Arm’d and fearless – eating, drinking,
sleeping, loving,
No law less than ourselves owning –
sailing, soldiering, thieving, threatening,
Misers, menials, priests alarming, –
air breathing, water drinking,
on the turf or the sea-beach dancing,
Cities wrenching, ease scorning,
statutes mocking, feebleness chasing,
Fulfilling our foray.

  1. ha lieve Marjolijn,

    Ik heb ‘Leaves of grass’ gelijk uit mijn kast gepakt; om dichtbij te hebben en voor de komende week weer krachten te verzamelen!

    ” There was never any more inception than there is now;
    Not any more youth or age than there is now;
    And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
    Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.”


    1. Prachtig gedicht ook, dank je wel voor deze inspirerende reaktie, Hieke!
      Zojuist heb ik mijn werk opgehangen bij “All About Drawing”, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.
      Zou ons werk het samen gezellig hebben bij GIST???
