Among the many blessings of poetry, this:

from “Self-Protection” by D.H. Lawrence


A nightingale singing at the top of his voice

Is neither hiding himself, nor preserving himself nor propagating his species;

He is giving himself away in every sense of the word;

And obviously, it is the culminating point of his existence.
