I Am That I Am

I Lie on my back on the shingle shore
Subdued by the wind and the pebbly roar;
I see the white clouds in their domes of air

Excerpt from Poems

I Am That I Am

I Lie on my back on the shingle shore
Subdued by the wind and the pebbly roar;
I see the white clouds in their domes of air
And the specks of birds that are floating there;
And the earth is small and the sky is large -
I forget the sense of my time and charge;
I am lost in awe of the Great Program -
Only this I know: I know that I Am.

The wild earth it is swinging afree from its place,
It is rolling adrift on the limitless space,
It is sailing away past cerulean bars,
It is passing the moon and the sun and the stars: -
And the wind and the wind it is following fast,
And the sunshine and shadow are scurrying past,
And white cloud-shafts are pointing with fingering streams
That are caught and are lost in the myths of my dreams.
