Let no man seek [ ] Henceforth to be foretold what shall befall Him or his Childern, evil he may be sure, Which neither his foreknowing can prevent, And hee the future evil shall no less In apprehension then in substance feel [ ] The earth breath and other poems book to bear: but that care now is past, Man is not whom to warne: those few escapt Famin and anguish will at last consume Wandring that watrie Desert: I had hope When violence was ceas't, and Warr on Earth, [ ] All would have then gon well, peace would have crownd With length of happy dayes the race of man; But I was farr deceav'd; for now I see Peace to corrupt no less then Warr to waste. Otherwise I like everything here, except "the presence of absence", where the violin as a physical object gets lost in abstract nouns. But Centaurs ne'er have been, nor can there be Creatures of twofold stock and double frame, Compact of members alien in kind, Yet formed with equal function, equal force In every bodily part- a fact thou mayst, However dull thy wits, well learn from this: The horse, when his three years have rolled away, Flowers in his prime of vigour; but the boy Not so, for oft even then he gropes in sleep After the milky nipples of the breasts, An infant still. Why is life giv'n To be thus wrested from us? This is a terrific poem, written by someone with sharp powers of observation, who has either an affinity with DH Lawrence and Ted Hughes, or an acquaintance with their poems about animals.

Everyone will say that this land which was waste has now become like a Garden of Eden. Yet he and those forementioned known to be So far beneath him, less than he in allThough, as The earth breath and other poems book of much goodly truth, They gave, as 'twere from out of the heart's own shrine, Responses holier and soundlier based Than ever the Pythia pronounced for men From out the tripod and the Delphian laurel, Have still in matter of first-elements Made ruin of themselves, and, great men, great Indeed and heavy there for them the fall: First, because, banishing the void from things, They yet assign them motion, and allow Things soft and loosely textured to exist, As air, dew, fire, earth, animals, and grains, Without admixture of void amid their frame. Maybe we could grow old and not betray each other. Once again, If thou suppose whatever thou beholdest, Among all visible objects, cannot be, Unless thou feign bodies of matter endowed With a like nature,- by thy vain device For thee will perish all the germs of things: 'Twill come to pass they'll laugh aloud, like men, Shaken asunder by a spasm of mirth, Or moisten with salty tear-drops cheeks and chins.

Whoever heard of a staircase breathing? The heat were keener with the parts compressed, Milder, again when severed or dispersed- And more than this thou canst conceive of naught That from such causes could become; much less Might earth's variety of things be born From any fires soever, dense or rare. Nor do they see, That, if from things we take away the void, All things are then condensed, and out of all One body made, which has no power to dart Swiftly from out itself not anything- As throws the fire its light and warmth around, Giving thee proof its parts are not compact. The anapestic meter gives the poem a rolling, childlike innocence. Which spring and bloom abroad from out the earth.

This too: if they suppose a void in things, Then fires can be condensed and still left rare; But since they see such opposites of thought Rising against them, and are loath to leave An unmixed void in things, they fear the steep And lose the road of truth.

The poem is interesting formally, with its opening and closing lines so strongly marked out, framing the panda as if on the window-sill.
