Famous Women Poets

    I am

    I am! The ages on the ages roll:
    And what I am, I was, and I shall be:
    by slow growth filling higher Destiny,
    And Widening, ever, to the widening Goal.
    I am the Stone that slept; down deep in me
    That old, old sleep has left its centurine trace;
    I am the plant that dreamed; and lo! still see
    That dream-life dwelling on the Human Face.
    I slept, I dreamed, I wakened: I am Man!
    The hut grows Palaces; the depths breed light;
    Still on! Forms pass; but Form yields kinglier
    The singer, dying where his song began,
    In Me yet lives; and yet again shall he
    Unseal the lips of greater songs To Be;
    For mine the thousand tongues of Immortality.

    - Voltaraine De Cleyre
