    There is only one thing that a man really wants to do, all his life; and that is, to find his way to his God, his Morning Star, salute his fellow man, and enjoy the woman who has come the long way with him.

    we salute you
    season of no bungling
    Charles Olson (1910–1970)

    Alas, day, you brought light,
    You trailed splendour
    You showed us god:
    I salute you, most precious one,
    But I go to a new place,
    Another life.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
