Five Quotes about Writing – Part 5

suri hudstedt what i love

“Experience
has taught me
that good work
can only appear
when the writer
is relaxed
and open,

when
she or he
is able
to attune
her or himself

to a deep
inner music

and then sing
on the page.”

~ Siri Hustvedt

  1. Rave on, John Donne, rave on thy holy fool
    Down through the weeks of ages
    In the moss borne dark dank pools

    Rave on down through the industrial revolution
    Empiricism, atomic and nuclear age
    Rave on down through time and space down through the corridors
    Rave on words on printed page

    Rave on, you left us infinity
    And well pressed pages torn to fade
    Drive on with wild abandon
    Up tempo, frenzied heels

    Rave on, Walt Whitman, nose down in wet grass
    Rave on, fill the senses
    On nature’s bright green shady path

    Rave on Omar Khayyam, rave on Kahlil Gibran
    Oh, what sweet wine we drinkin’
    The celebration will be held
    We will partake the wine and break the holy bread

    Rave on let a man come out of Ireland
    And rave on, Mr.Yeats
    Rave on down through thy holy Rosy Cross

    Rave on down through theosophy and the golden dawn
    Rave on through the writing of a vision
    Rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on, rave on

    Rave on, John Donne, rave on thy holy fool
    Down through the weeks of ages
    In the moss borne dark dank pools

    Rave on, down though the industrial revolution
    Empiricism and atomic and nuclear age
    Rave on, on printed page

    I apparently couldn’t get a live link from the YT site, but cutnpaste did the business. Hope you enjoy it.
