ISSUE:  Winter 1946

Lord, I have loved your sky,
Be it said against or for me,
Have loved it clear and high,
Or low and stormy;

Till I have reeled and stumbled
From looking up too much,
And fallen and been humbled
To wear a crutch.

My love for every Heaven
O’er which you, Lord, have lorded,
From number One to Seven
Should be rewarded.

I should not dare to hope
That when I am translated
My scalp will in the cope
Be constellated.

But if that seems to tend
To my undue renown,
At least you ought to send
Me up, not down.
