I am waiting for the last long rapture

and I am waiting
for the green mornings to come again
for some strains of
unpremeditated art
to shake my typewriter
and
I am waiting to write
the great
indelible poem
and I am waiting
for the last
long rapture
and
I am perpetually waiting
for the
fleeting lovers on the Grecian Urn
to catch each other at last
and embrace
and I am awaiting
perpetually and forever

a renaissance of wonder


I Am Waiting
By Lawrence Ferlinghetti
