Their hungry thirsty roots?""Come buy," call the Goblins. Hobbling down the glen
Evening prayer. I spend my life sitting, like an angel in a barber's chair, Holding a beer mug with deep-cut designs, My neck and gut both bent, while in the air. A weightless veil of pipe smoke hangs. Like steaming dung within an old dovecote. A thousand Dreams within me softly burn: From time to time my heart is like some oak. Whose blood runs golden where a branch is torn. And then, when I have swallowed down my Dreams. In thirty, forty mugs of beer, I turn. To satisfy a need I can't ignore, And like the Lord of Hyssop and of Myrrh. I piss into the skies, a soaring stream. That consecrates a patch of flowering fern.
I used to smoke marijuana. But I’ll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening – or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, midevening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early midafternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . . But never at dusk.

For, characteristically, the sound that rose towards the terraces still bathed in the last glow of daylight, now that the noises of vehicles and motors--the sole voice of cities in ordinary times--had ceased, was but one vast rumour of low voices and incessant footfalls, the drumming of innumerable soles timed to the eerie whistling of the plague in the sultry air above, the sound of a huge concourse of people marking time, a never-ending, stifling drone that, gradually swelling, filled the town from end to end, and evening after evening gave its truest, mournfullest expression to the blind endurance which had ousted love from all our hearts.
My idea of absolute happiness is to sit in a hot garden all, reading, or writing, utterly safe in the knowledge that the person I love will come home to me in the evening. Every evening.''You are a romantic, Edith,' repeated Mr Neville, with a smile.'It is you who are wrong,' she replied. 'I have been listening to that particular accusation for most of my life. I am not a romantic. I am a domestic animal. I do not sigh and yearn for extravagant displays of passion, for the grand affair, the world well lost for love. I know all that, and know that it leaves you lonely. No, what I crave is the simplicity of routine. An evening walk, arm in arm, in fine weather. A game of cards. Time for idle talk. Preparing a meal together.
Home is where one starts from. As we grow older. The world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicated. Of dead and living. Not the intense moment. Isolated, with no before and after, But a lifetime burning in every moment. And not the lifetime of one man only. But of old stones that cannot be deciphered. There is a time for the evening under starlight, A time for the evening under lamplight(The evening with the photograph album). Love is most nearly itself. When here and now cease to matter. Old men ought to be explorers. Here or there does not matter. We must be still and still moving. Into another intensity. For a further union, a deeper communion. Through the dark cold and the empty desolation, The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters. Of the petrel and the porpoise. In my end is my beginning.
