I Will Wade Out

I Will Wade Out excerpt by E. E. Cummings

I Will Wade Out

i will wade out
             till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
                            with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
                     in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
                         Will i complete the mystery
                         of my flesh
I will rise
           After a thousand years
       And set my teeth in the silver of the moon

by E.E. Cummings
