Don't Wear It On Your Head (Salt Edition)
Originally uploaded by John Siddique
New cover for my children's book 'Don't Wear It On Your Head...' which is being reissued by SALT this year.. More info on dates etc when we have them..
Flowers achieve their own floweriness and it is a miracle.
Men don't achieve their own manhood, alas, oh alas! alas!
All I want of you men and women,
all I want of you
is that you shall achieve your own beauty
as the flowers do.
Oh leave off saying I want you to be savages.
Tell me is the gentian savage, at the top of its coarse stem?
Oh what in you can answer to this blueness?
[I want you to be as savage] as the gentian and the daffodil.
Tell me! tell me! is there in you a beauty to compare
to the honeysuckle at evening now
pouring out his breath.
