    "Pain (any pain--emotional, physical, mental) has a message. The information it has about our life can be remarkably specific, but it usually falls into one of two categories: "We would be more alive if we did more of this," and, "Life would be more lovely if we did less of that." Once we get the pain's message, and follow its advice, the pain goes away."

    From New Poems (1916).

    And all hours long, the town
    Roars like a beast in a cave
    That is wounded there
    And like to drown;
    While days rush, wave after wave
    On its lair.

    An invisible woe unseals
    The flood, so it passes beyond
    All bounds: the great old city
    Recumbent roars as it feels
    The foamy paw of the pond
    Reach from immensity.

    But all that it can do
    Now, as the tide rises,
    Is to listen and hear the grim
    Waves crash like thunder through
    The splintered streets, hear noises
    Roll hollow in the interim.
