„Snail, snail, glister me forward,
Bird, soft-sigh me home,
Worm, be with me.
This is my hard time.“

"The Lost Son," ll. 8-11
The Lost Son and Other Poems (1948)
Contexto: I shook the softening chalk of my bones,
Saying,
Snail, snail, glister me forward,
Bird, soft-sigh me home,
Worm, be with me.
This is my hard time.
