Deliverance Through Art

When I am making poetry I'm good 
And happy then. 
I live in a deep world of angelhood 
Afar from men. 
And all the great and bright and fiery troop 
Kiss me agen 
With love. Deathless Ideas! I have no need 
Of girls' lips then. 
Goodness and happiness and poetry, 
I put them by. 
I will not rush with great wings gloriously 
Against the sky 
While poor men sit in holes, unbeautiful, 
Unsouled, and die: 
Better let misery and pettiness 
Make me their sty.
