Edwin Muir
I have observed in foolish awe
The dateless mid-days of the law
And seen indifferent justice done
By everyone on everyone.
Muir quotes
They do not live in the world,
Are not in time and space.
From birth to death hurled
No word do they have, not one
To plant a foot upon,
Were never in any place.
The world's great day is growing late,
Yet strange these fields that we have planted
So long with crops of love and hate.

Muir Edwin quotes
Long time he lay upon the sunny hill,
To his father's house below securely bound.
