    Speak against unconscious oppression,
    Speak against the tyranny of the unimaginative,
    Speak against bonds.
    Be against all forms of oppression,
    Go out and defy opinion.
    This is the old cry of the poet, but more precise, as an
    expression of frank disgust:
    Go to the adolescent who are smothered in family.
    O, how hideous it is
    To see three generations of one house gathered together!
    It is like an old tree without shoots,
    And with some branches rotted and falling.
    Evehas quoted6 years ago
    The virile complaint, the revolt of the poet, all which shows his emotion,—that is poetry.
    Evehas quoted6 years ago
    I beseech you enter your life.
    I beseech you learn to say "I"
    When I question you.
    For you are no part, but a whole;
    No portion, but a being.
