  1. Have some compassion !!

    Hornworm: Autumn Lamentation by Stanley Kunitz

    Since that first morning when I crawled
    into the world, a naked grubby thing,
    and found the world unkind,
    my dearest faith has been that this
    is but a trial: I shall be changed.
    In my imaginings I have already spent
    my brooding winter underground,
    unfolded silky powdered wings, and climbed
    into the air, free as a puff of cloud
    to sail over the steaming fields,
    alighting anywhere I pleased,
    thrusting into deep tubular flowers.

    It is not so: there may be nectar
    in those cups, but not for me.
    All day, all night, I carry on my back
    embedded in my flesh, two rows
    of little white cocoons,
    so neatly stacked
    they look like eggs in a crate.
    And I am eaten half away.

    If I can gather strength enough
    I’ll try to burrow under a stone
    and spin myself a purse
    in which to sleep away the cold;
    though when the sun kisses the earth
    again, I know I won’t be there.
    Instead, out of my chrysalis
    will break, like robbers from a tomb,
    a swarm of parasitic flies,
    leaving my wasted husk behind.

    Sir, you with the red snippers
    in your hand, hovering over me,
    casting your shadow, I greet you,
    whether you come as an angel of death
    or of mercy. But tell me,
    before you choose to slice me in two:
    Who can understand the ways
    of the Great Worm in the Sky?
