    I think it's more analogical or something

    I love the Duncan Campbell Scott poem, though L6 made me stumble when he wrote "ruth". After googling a bit "(adj) ruthful - feeling or expressing pain or sorrow for sins or offenses"... https://www.finedictionary.com/ruthful.html

    re: "ruth"- I didn´t notice the word. It seems to be British English.

    Enjoyed the original take!

    "May is Building Her House". May is building her house by Richard Le Gallienne

    "May is Building Her House
    May is building her house. With apple blossoms
    She is roofing over the glimmering rooms;
    Of the oak and the beech hath she builded its beams,
    And, spinning all day at her secret looms,
    With arras of leaves each wind-swayed wall
    She pictureth over, and peopleth it all
    With echoes and dreams,
    And singing of streams.
    May is building her house. Of petal and blade,
    Of the roots of the oak is the flooring made,
    With a carpet of mosses and lichen and clover,
    Each small miracle over and over,
    And tender, traveling green things strayed.
    Her windows, the morning and evening star,
    And her rustling doorways, ever ajar
    With the coming and going
    Of fair things blowing,
    The thresholds of the four winds are.
    May is building her house. From the dust of things
    She is making the songs and the flowers and the wings;
    From October's tossed and trodden gold
    She is making the young year out of the old;
    Yea! out of winter's flying sleet
    She is making all the summer sweet,
    And the brown leaves spurned of November's feet
    She is changing back again to spring's."
    Richard Le Gallienne

    Found also:

    "Kvothe Dec 2020
    Post-covid walk

    Quick,
    quit your cage of crystal screens,
    the virus here has came and been.
    Seek trees with vines in times of need,
    and see Sol
    speckle kisses
    on crisp new leaves."

    Very original and interesting!

    The Divine Image (In "Songs of Innocence")
    William Blake

    To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
    All pray in their distress;
    And to these virtues of delight
    Return their thankfulness.
    For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
    Is God, our father dear,
    And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
    Is Man, his child and care.
    For Mercy has a human heart,
    Pity a human face,
    And Love, the human form divine,
    And Peace, the human dress.
    Then every man, of every clime,
    That prays in his distress,
    Prays to the human form divine,
    Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace.
    And all must love the human form,
    In heathen, turk, or jew;
    Where Mercy, Love, & Pity dwell
    There God is dwelling too.
