Poem by Claude McKay


Polarity


Nay, why reproach each other, be unkind, 
For theres no plane on which we two may meet? 
Lets both forgive, forget, for both were blind, 
And life is of a day, and time is fleet. 

And I am fire, swift to flame and burn, 
Melting with elements high overhead, 
While you are water in an earthly urn, 
All pure, but heavy, and of hue like lead.



Claude McKay
