This man was of wonderful vigor, calmness, beauty of person; The shape of his head, the pale yellow and white of his hair and beard, and the immeasurable meaning of his black eyes--the richness and breadth of his manners, These I used to go and visit him to see--he was wise also; He was six feet tall, he was over eighty years old--his sons were massive, clean, bearded, tan-faced, handsome; They and his daughters loved him--all who saw him loved him; They did not love him by allowance--they loved him with personal love; 40 He drank water only--the blood show'd like scarlet through the clear- brown skin of his face; He was a frequent gunner and fisher--he sail'd his boat himself--he had a fine one presented to him by a ship-joiner--he had fowling-pieces, presented to him by men that loved him; When he went with his five sons and many grand-sons to hunt or fish, you would pick him out as the most beautiful and vigorous of the gang. Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves; And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead? The man's body is sacred, and the woman's body is sacred; No matter who it is, it is sacred; Is it a slave? Her rejection of the new member of their family will have serious repercussions but also lead to closure. There swells and jets a heart--there all passions, desires, reachings, aspirations; 110 Do you think they are not there because they are not express'd in parlors and lecture-rooms? Other Voices Records are proud to present Tobias Bernstrup's new album 'Sing My Body Electric'. This is not only one man--this is the father of those who shall be fathers in their turns; In him the start of populous states and rich republics; Of him countless immortal lives, with countless embodiments and enjoyments. Please don't judge 'The Twilight Zone' or Ray Bradbury's writing by this anomalous effort.

I am drawn by its breath as if I were no more than a helpless vapor—all falls aside but myself and it; Books, art, religion, time, the visible and solid earth, the atmosphere and clouds, and what was expected of heaven or fear’d of hell, are now consumed; Mad filaments, ungovernable shoots play out of it—the response likewise ungovernable; Hair, bosom, hips, bend of legs, negligent falling hands, all diffused—mine too diffused; Ebb stung by the flow, and flow stung by the ebb—love-flesh swelling and deliciously aching; Limitless limpid jets of love hot and enormous, quivering jelly of love, white-blow and delirious juice; Bridegroom night of love, working surely and softly into the prostrate dawn; Undulating into the willing and yielding day, Lost in the cleave of the clasping and sweet-flesh’d day.

There is something in staying close to men and women, and looking on them, and in the contact and odor of them, that pleases the soul well; 50 All things please the soul--but these please the soul well. And if the body were not the Soul, what is the Soul? I dare not desert the likes of you in other men and women, nor the likes of the parts of you; I believe the likes of you are to stand or fall with the likes of the Soul, and that they are the ; I believe the likes of you shall stand or fall with my poems—and that they are poems, Man’s, woman’s, child’s, youth’s, wife’s, husband’s, mother’s, father’s, young man’s, young woman’s poems; Head, neck, hair, ears, drop and tympan of the ears, Eyes, eye-fringes, iris of the eye, eye-brows, and the waking or sleeping of the lids, Mouth, tongue, lips, teeth, roof of the mouth, jaws, and the jaw-hinges, Nose, nostrils of the nose, and the partition, Cheeks, temples, forehead, chin, throat, back of the neck, neck-slue, Strong shoulders, manly beard, scapula, hind-shoulders, and the ample side-round of the chest.
