Auckland, New Zealand
Not cold but flushed with the heat of life, however lived...sea or earth or stars, I believe the energy of atoms gives us the right to share the heat...apart from the provoking thought of this, Severn, I thought the poem itself was well-written and I liked the use of "colder" as a refrain...reminding us that all the universe is not the same as us.
"Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems,
You shall possess the good of the earth and sun (there are millions of suns left,)
You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books,
You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,
You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self." >Walt Whitman, Song of Myself.
