what you will seek v. what you will find

I feel that I am half divine. I that I am great and strong

from Lotus Leaves by Oscar Wilde


Shall I be gladdened for the day
And let my inner heart be stirred
By murmuring tree or song of bird,
And sorrow at the wild winds' play?

Not so, such idle dreams belong
to souls of lesser depth than mine;
I feel that I am half divine;
I that I am great and strong.

I know that every forest tree
By labour rises from the root
I know that none shall gather fruit
By sailing on the barren sea
anchors, feeling better, sailor's knots, the blue between stars&ships, the sea like navymen
