The Web Poetry Corner - Philip Claude Andermann - Unfearing Arms of a Lover
Unfearing Arms of a Lover
Philip Claude Andermann
To celebrate, to love, oneself
is to love all others as part of oneself.
To embrace others close to oneself
with arms pulling everyone close
to their own freedom, their self-fulfillment.
"I sing of myself," and Whitman sings of everyone singing,
his imagination rouses a chorus of world peace,
in everything, the tiniest the greatest.
People of his time did not understand his kind of love,
but now it has become irresistible around the world.
Among many others,
around 1900 it roused Sun Yat Sen
to a democratic revolution for China,
and Daisaku Ikeda to human revolution for the world.
The leaves of pages of his poems indeed were the grass
that emerges from the earth and envelops it all in love,
more than the unfearing arms of a loved one.
