Empsonics including a remark by George Saintsbury
I can’t remember who predicted the fancy damage.
Seeing where a noise is coming from
helps. It helps the ‘cry’ in lyric when it is well managed.
Epic isn’t for you if you don’t like carnage.
An English fountain won’t play after 5pm
even though you’ve bought your ticket. Fancy damage
to a country house and call it Carthage:
a fountain though a pen when a swan but the museum
turns musician as the night wears on. Carnage
is a joy in an epic and the fanciest damage.
Seeing noises will show you where an owl is coming from.
It helps the ‘cry’ in lyric when it is well managed.
