Let me stop here. Let me, too, look at nature awhile.

The brilliant blue of the morning sea, of the cloudless sky,

the yellow shore; all lovely,

all bathed in light.

Let me stand here. And let me pretend I see all this

(I really did see it for a minute when I first stopped)

and not my usual day-dreams here too,

my memories, those images of sensual pleasure.
