The Poetry of Eyvind Earle



The Poetry of Eyvind Earle

This book includes over 300 poems and writings that the artist wrote from 1938.

The following is an excerpt from the book:

The world has a pound to it
Sharp rhythmic beating for eternal ages
The echo of infinity
Everything beats and pounds in time
Moves and swings with even sway
Twenty billion heartbeats sad and happy
Pound the echo of infinity
War on world
Fight away men
Make heroes of yourselves
Be not afraid of death
March into the face of cannons
Charge into a rain of bullets
That makes holes in your heart
And let the life run out of you
Show us that you can conquer fear
Smile at death
Step right over to the other side
Leave your bodies without looking back
Be like gods men
The world is a ringing world
Like Sunday church bells that never stop
The crickets ring at night
The wind rings through the trees
The tall grass rings
Oh and there is a mystic ring to the stars
And a glad ringing of all good people
There is a ring in my heart when friends are near
There is a sad ring when I’m away
Oh yes
There are sad and happy ringings
This world is a ringer of sad and happy bells
