O Love! Why

O love! Why,
why hast thou gone
across to the other side
of the river ?
I know not how to swim,
There is no hope of my swimming across;
Come thou thyself,
my love!
 
Bhai Vir Singh

In Sleep

In sleep, in sleep, I wander deep,
Into minds un-ego’ed keep,
And swim in thoughts
And swim in dark,
To where all source of thoughts embark,

In sleep, in dreams, I saunter slow,
To where all conscious things must go,
And ramble on
And tumble down
And aim for something bright below,

I turn, I flow, through golden veins,
Connected to all other brains,
With every move
I touch the great,
The one connected living state,

In here, this here, I feel at peace,
As though all forms of doubting cease,
And this is me,
The brightest me,
The central source indefinitely,

Three Movements

SHAKESPEAREAN fish swam the sea, far away from land;
Romantic fish swam in nets coming to the hand;
What are all those fish that lie gasping on the strand?
 
William Butler Yeats

How Did You Meet Your Wife?

Swimming the English Channel,
struggling to make it to Calais,
I swam into Laura halfway across.
My body oiled for warmth,
black rubber cap on my head,
eyes hidden behind goggles,
I was exhausted, ready to drown,
when I saw her coming toward me,
bobbing up and down between waves,
effortlessly doing a breaststroke,
heading for Dover. Treading water
I asked in French if she spoke English,
and she said, "Yes, I'm an American."
I said, "Hey, me too," then asked her out for coffee.


Anonymous submission.
 
Richard Jones
