Let Ahimaaz rejoice with the Silver-Worm who is a living mineral / For there is silver in my mines and I bless God that it is rather there than in my coffers.

Ecstatic poem, annotated, call-&-response.


Poem rendered from Hodgson’s Hog


I wonder whether you can understand.

I wonder if I make it clear to you?

I wonder whether this thought attracts you as it does me?

I wonder I didn’t go mad.

I wonder whether I make this clear to you?

I wonder if I am making it at all clear to you.

I wonder if you can get my feelings as I stood there staring down at the destroyed barrier.

I wonder whether I make it clear.

‘A principal rule for writers, and especially those who want to describe their own sensations, is not to believe that their doing so indicates they possess a special disposition of nature in this respect. Others can perhaps do it just as well as you can. Only they do not make a business of it, because it seems to them silly to publicize such things.’
