It may seem a schoolboy’s whine,
And yet I seek not to be grand nor witty,
But I am half a Scot by birth, and bred
A whole one, and my heart flies to my head.
Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Among the stars that have a different birth?
becoming still still becoming
pausing here to read this reading this to pause here
slow down long enough to read these words
