You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

I dwell in Possibility

Language: English

I dwell in Possibility - 
A fairer House than Prose - 
More numerous of Windows - 
Superior - for Doors - 

Of Chambers as the Cedars - 
Impregnable of Eye - 
And for an Everlasting Roof 
The Gambrels of the Sky - 

Of Visitors - the fairest - 
For Occupation - This - 
The spreading wide my narrow Hands 
To gather Paradise -


Translation(s): GER ITA

Dimoro nel possibile

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the English

Dimoro nel possibile -
Una casa più bella della prosa -
Di finestre più ricca -
Magnifiche - le sue porte -

Come Cedri le stanze -
Impenetrabili all'occhio -
E per tetto perenne
La volta celeste -

I suoi ospiti - i più belli -
Che ci faccio? - Questo -
Tengo aperte le mie esili mani
per accogliervi il Paradiso.
