"Scattered Pines on the Tone River" (1856)
Brooklyn Museum

inspiring this stanza:

  Pine trees at the left shore—
  two cranes flying above the boat
  as fisherman casts his net for carps.

Brooklyn Museum Notes: We can almost hear the swish as
the fisherman casts his net out over the Tone River. The stubby
lead weights around the edge of the net form a pleasing border
to the intricate web within, a masterpiece of carving technique.
Through the net is a blurred continuation of the distant shore.
The "scattered pines" of the title may be explained by the pine
trees on the island at the left, worn and twisted by the wind.
The place was popular among fishermen for its carp.

three different sections from Psalm 74. Bach, then organist in Mühlhausen's church
Divi Blasii, led the performance on 4 February 1708 in the town's main church,
the Marienkirche. Bach structured the cantata in seven movements. He scored
the vocal parts for four soloists: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. YouTube.

98) Symphony 71 by Joseph Haydn in B flat major, Hoboken I/71, It was composed by 1780.
Symphony is scored for flute, two oboes, bassoon, two horns and strings. After dark string
sonorities reminiscent of Sturm und Drang in slow introduction, Allegro begins with a very
light galante theme which is interrupted by more darkly colored strings. Transitional material
is notable for its use of counterpoint. Slow 2nd movement is a theme with 4 variations and a coda.
Second variation features a flute & bassoon duet over 32 notes & pizzicato bass. Triplet-sixteenths
dominate 3rd variation. As usual, final variation is recapitulatory, but here Haydn extends variation
with further development & a cadenza-like passage. Trio of minuet features solo sections for two
violins against a pizzicato bass. YouTube. Photo Source: Symphony 71 (amazon.com)

Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, the music journal of record for German-speaking
Europe during Beethoven's lifetime, described the Sextet in a review of the benefit
as "a composition which shines resplendent by reason of its lively melodies,
unconstrained harmonies, and a wealth of new and surprising ideas," praise
tinged with irony for a nine-year-old work. YouTube.

and the first one even irony, a serene sense or exuberance and excitement for love
current, rather than love lost, pervades the set. Five songs: 1. Es liebt sich so lieblich
im Lenze (Love is so Lovely in Spring); 2. An den Mond (To the Moon); 3. Geheimnis
(Secret); 4. Willst du, dass ich geh'? (Do You Wish Me to Go?); 5. Minnelied (Love Song).

what it is to be deranged. Proving
that self-discovery wasn't over

that is associated usually with

lay siege to the aged.

146) In 71st Psalm David prays for support in old age:
1. In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
5. For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.
7. I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
9. Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
12. O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
14. But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more,
17. O God, thou hast taught me from my youth:
      and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
18. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not;
      until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation,
      and thy power to every one that is to come.
19. Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things:
      O God, who is like unto thee!,
21. Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

    And their faces shone like snow.
2. And I saw two streams of fire, And the light of that fire shone
    like hyacinth, And I fell on my face before the Lord of Spirits.
3. And the archangel Michael seized me by my right hand,
    And lifted me up and led me forth into all the secrets,archangel
    And he showed me all the secrets of righteousness.archangel
4. And he showed me all the secrets of the ends of the heaven,
    And all the chambers of all the stars, and all the luminaries,
    Whence they proceed before the face of the holy ones.
5. And he translated my spirit into the heaven of heavens,
    And I saw there as it were a structure built of crystals,
    And between those crystals tongues of living fire.
8. And I saw angels who could not be counted,
    A thousand thousands, and ten thousand
    times ten thousand, Encircling that house.
    And Michael, and Raphael, and Gabriel, and Phanuel,
    And the holy angels who are above the heavens,
    Go in and out of that house.
11. And I fell on my face, And my whole body became relaxed,
    And my spirit was transfigured; And I cried with a loud voice
    ... with the spirit of power, And blessed and glorified and extolled.

148) 71st Saying of Gospel of Thomas:
Jesus said: I will destroy this house, and none shall able to build it again.
Gospel of Thomas 71 (114 sayings of Jesus, circa 150 A.D.)
(translated by Thomas O. Lambdin, 1988)
149) In Chapter 71 of The Aquarian Gospel, Jesus, his six disciples and his mother,
go to Capernaum. Jesus teaches the people, revealing the difference
between the kings of earth and the kings of heaven..
  1. The city of Capernaum was by the sea of Galilee, and Peter's home
      was there. The homes of Andrew, John and James were near,
  2. These men were fishermen, and must return to tend their nets, and
      they prevailed on Jesus and his mother to accompany them, and soon
      with Philip and Nathaniel they were resting by the sea in Peter's home.
  3. The news spread through the city and along the shore that Judah's king
      had come, and multitudes drew near to press his hand.
  4. And Jesus said, I cannot show the king, unless you see with eyes of soul,
      because the kingdom of the king is in the soul.
  5. And every soul a kingdom is. There is a king for every man.
  6. This king is love, and when this love becomes the greatest power
      in life, it is the Christ; so Christ is king.
  7. And every one may have this Christ dwell in his soul, as Christ dwells in my soul.
  8. The body is the temple of the king, and men may call a holy man a king.
  9. He who will cleanse his mortal form and make it pure, so pure that love
      and righteousness may dwell unsullied side by side within its walls, is king.
13. Men seldom see what others truly are. The human senses sense what seems to be,
      and that which seems to be and that which is, may be diverse in every way.
14. Carnal man beholds outer man, which is the king's temple, & worships at his shrine.
15. The man of God is pure in heart; he sees the king; he sees with eyes of soul:
16. And when he rises to the plane of Christ Consciousness, he knows
      that he himself is king, is love, is Christ, and so is son of God.
17. You men of Galilee, prepare to meet your king.
18. And Jesus taught the people many lessons as he walked with them beside the sea.

150) Hymn 71 in Book 1 of the Rig Veda is a song of praise to Agni, the God of Fire:
1. LOVING the loving One, as wives their husband, the sisters of one home
    have urged him forward, Bright-coloured, even, as the cows love morning,
    dark, breaking forth to view, and redly beaming.
2. Our sires with lauds burst e'en the firm-set fortress, yea, the Angirases,
    with roar, the mountain. They made for us a way to reach high heaven,
    they found us day, light, day's sign, beams of morning.
3. They stablished order, made his service fruitful; then parting them
    among the longing faithful, Not thirsting after aught, they come,
    most active, while with sweet food the race of Gods they strengthen.
5. When man poured juice to Heaven, the mighty Father, he knew and freed
    himself from close embracement. The archer boldly shot at him his arrow,
    and the God threw his splendour on his Daughter.
7. All sacrificial viands wait on Agni as the Seven mighty Rivers
    seek the ocean. Not by our brethren was our food discovered:
    find with the Gods care for us, thou who knowest.
8. When light hath filled the Lord of men for increase, straight
    from the heaven descends the limpid moisture. Agni hath brought to light
    and filled with spirit the youthful host blameless and well providing.
9. He who like thought goes swiftly on his journey, the Sun, alone
    is ever Lord of riches. The Kings with fair hands, Varuna and
    Mitra, protect the precious nectar in our cattle.Mitra,
10. O Agni, break not our ancestral friendship, Sage as thou art,
     endowed with deepest knowledge. Old age, like gathering cloud,
     impairs the body: before that evil be come nigh protect me.

Chapter 71 in The Papyrus of Ani, Egyptian Book of the Dead
is "Chapter for going out into the day—
O you falcon who rise from the Primordial Water, Lord of the Celestial Waters,
make me hale just as you made yourself hale. Release him, loose him, put him
on earth, cause him to be loved: so says the One-faced Lord concerning me.
O you falcon within the shrine, may I be revealed to Him on whom
is a fringed garment: so says Horus son of Isis.
O Horus in the southern sky. O Thoth in the northern sky,
pacify for me the raging serpent, raise up Maat for me to
Him whom she loves: so says Thoth.
O Osiris, make me hale just as you made yourself hale.
Release him, loose him, put him on earth, cause him
to be loved: so says the One-faced Lord concerning me.
O you seven knots, the arms of the balance on that night of the setting the Sacred Eye in order,
who cut off heads, who sever necks, who take away hearts, who snatch hearts, who make a slaughter
in the Island of Fire: I know you. I know your names, may you know me just as I know your names;
if I reach you, you may reach me; if you live through me, may I live through you; may you make me
to florish with what is in your hands, the staff which is in your grasp. May you destine me to life
annually: may you grant to me many years of life over and above my years of life.

Lao Tzu (604 BC-517 BC), Tao Te Ching, Verse 71:
Not-knowing is true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize that you are sick;
then you can move toward health.
The Master is her own physician.
She has healed herself of all knowing.
Thus she is truly whole.

153) Lao Tzu (604-517 BC), Hua Hu Ching, Verse 71:
The transformation toward eternal life is gradual. The heavy, gross energy of body,
mind, and spirit must first be purified and uplifted. When the energy ascends to the
subtle level, then self-mastery can be sought. A wise instructor teaches the powerful
principles of self-integration only to those who have already achieved a high level of
self-purification and self-mastery. In addition, all proper teaching follows the law
of energy response: the most effective method is always that to which the student's
natural energy most harmoniously responds. For one, celibacy and self-cultivation
will be appropriate; for another, properly guided dual cultivation will derive the
greatest benefit. A discerning teacher will determine the proper balance of practices
for each individual. In any case, know that all teachers and techniques are only
transitional: true realization comes from the direct merger of one's being with
the divine energy of the Tao.

158) Section 71b-71e of Plato's Timaeus— Gift of divination not for rationable minds:
God fashioned the liver dense and smooth and bright and sweet, yet containing
bitterness, that the power of thoughts which proceed from the mind, moving in the
liver as in a mirror which receives impressions and provides visible images, should
frighten this part of the soul... And that God gave unto man's foolishness the gift
of divination a sufficient token is this: no man achieves true and inspired divination
when in his rational mind, but only when the power of his intelligence is fettered in
sleep or when it is distraught by disease or by reason of some divine inspiration.

168) Text 71 of On Spiritual Knowledge and Discrimination: 100 Texts
of Saint Diadochos of Photiki (400-486 AD)
Spiritual knowledge teaches us that, at the outset, the soul in pursuit
of theology is troubled by many passions, above all by anger and hatred.
This happens to it not so much because demons are arousing these passions,
as because it is making progress. So long as the soul is worldly-minded, it
remains unmoved & untroubled however much it sees people trampling justice
under foot. Preoccupied with its own desires, it pays no attention to the
justice of God. When, however, because of its disdain for this world and its
love for God, it begins to rise above its passions, it cannot bear, even in
its dreams, to see justice set at naught. It becomes infuriated with evil-doers
and remains angry until it sees the violators of justice forced to make amends.
This, then, is why it hates the unjust and loves the just. The eye of the soul
cannot be led astray when its veil, by which I mean the body, is refined to
near-transparency through self-control. Nevertheless, it is much better to lament
the insensitivity of the unjust than to hate them; for even should they deserve
our hatred, it is senseless for a soul which loves God to be disturbed by hatred,
since when hatred is present in the soul spiritual knowledge is paralyzed.

[It is said that when Master Gozu still lived as a hermit in the mountains,]
the birds used to drop flowers by his feet. But after Gozu met Master Doshin
and attained enlightenment, the birds came no more.]
Someone asked, "When Gozu had not yet met Doshin, the birds used to drop
flowers at his feet. Why did the birds cease to do so after he met Doshin?"
Joshu said, "Being related to the worldly, not being related to the worldly."
Note: Before enlightenment the world is full of wonders. After
enlightenment it is as it is; Gozu strives no more, the birds fly south.

Koan 71 of Master Kido's Every End Exposed
Today Is a Holiday
On the day of the winter solstice [when in ('darkness")
is at an end and yo ("light") takes over— in temples,
this day is marked by a celebration]. Master Jimyo
put up the following sign in front of the temple hall

Jimyo said, "whoever understands this, is one with life."
The head monk saw this and said,
"Master, today is a holiday, you know."
Master Kido
The head monk says, "I shall go down
to the sickroom for Your Reverend."
Master Hakuin
To draw a cat by copying.
Plain Saying
Being healthy, I need medicine like a hole in the head.

Kido Chigu
aka Xutang Zhiyu
NOTE: In suggesting that the one who understands the divination symbol
will be enlightened, Jimyo is laying a trap. The monk who sees through Jimyo's
mind suggests (in "Today is a holiday") that he is "one with life" all right.
Kido's comment, which replaces the monk's saying is another example of
"being one with life" everyday language. Hakuin's substitute phrase and
plain saying suggest that the divination sign is meaningless and absolutely
superfluous if one is in one's natural state of mind.

Letter 71 (De anima: On the Soul) of Letters of Marsilio Ficino:
Marsilio Ficino to Bernardo Bembo of Venice, the illustrous knight.
Since man's heavenly Father has ordained that our homeland will be
heaven, we can never be content while we dwell on earth, a region far
removed from our homeland. Yet such a fate is common, not only to men,
but to all created things without exception, so that nowhere do they seek
rest save at their own source; and for the sake of rest they try to set their
end where they had their beginning... Nowhere is there found a medicine
adequate for earthly diseases, except divine love and worship... Therefore
our antidote is everything good. Our disease is insatiable desire & continual
turbulent, therefore our doctor is immeasurable good and eternal peace.
Should anyone deny that our medicine is the true adoration of God, there
is no remedy left for his ills, and all hope of health is removed. But in truth,
he who trusts in divine remedies, grows strong as soon as he trusts.

{The Teacher said,] "When a good thought arises, recognize it
and develop it fully. When an evil thought arises, recognize it and
stop it. It is the will that recognizes the thought and develops or
stops it; it is intelligence (that is, innate knowledge of the good)
endowed by Heaven. This is all a sage has. A student must preserve it."

184) Chapter 71 of Wei Wu Wei's Ask the Awakened (1963)
is titled "The Transmission of Truth":
It is a sad and extraordinary fact that peple of the present day seem.
psychologically unable to comprehend any thesis that is not expounded
in an elaborate architectual construction of verbiage... Yet, as every
sage has known, such discoursive expositions kill the truth they are
intended to convey. Truth is suffocated in a haystack of verbal disquisition,
and is born dead. Living truth cannot be transmitted wrapped up in
verbiage, for it cannot be transmitted factually at all. It can only be called
up by appropriate indication in the mental apparatus of another, and,
for that, suggestion, brief, stimulating, & spontaneous, alone can succeed.
The Expression of Truth: The reason why we, or even Sages, cannot—
must not or cannot— express what we, they, have understood by
intuition, is that by doing so, or even by trying to do so, we, they, would thereby turn
it into an object— which could not be it. For the ultimate truth
is necessarily purely subjective— that is pure subjectivity.
An eye cannot see itself, and
Truth cannot express itself,
Because, being non-duality,
It cannot be conveyed dualistically
As the object of a subject.
We try to convey it, directly; the Sages occasionally did so,
but by symbol and implication. But all that can ever be done
is to open a way whereby, summoned, it may rise into the
consciousness in which already it lies sleeping.

185) Chapter 71 of Wei Wu Wei's Open Secret (1965) is titled "In Fine"":
    The whole Buddhistic and Vedantic system (Advaita) depends on
the non-exitence of identity, as does the very idea of 'enlightenment'—
which is reintegration in universality. I doubt if tthere is anything else to be
understood, since every other element of doctrine is dependent on that, so that
such understanding is final. But in itself it is an impossibility as a thing-to-be-done,
since it requires the absence of anyone to do it or to abstain from doing it. Here there is
neither doing nor abstaining from doing, but only absence of abstaining from doing—
which is the Masters' way of saying 'total absence of any identity to do or to abstain
from doing anything whatsoever.' That is the arrow of an enlightened archer, for—
however many such arrows may be loosed— each one must split its predecessor
in the bull's-eye— which is the eye which itself is the flight of the arrow.
All it is: What I am is forever free. There is nothing in what I am to be bound.
Bondage, & consecutive suffering— which is all suffering—is entirely dependent
on the idea of an objective I, that is 'a me". But no such contradiction-in-terms
has ever existed, exists, or ever could be...Therefore every object is myself.
There can be no thing which is not myself. I am no thing but my objects, and my objects
are nothing but I. What is the use of writing, speaking, lecturing about anything so
simple and so obvious? There is just nothing else whatever to say or to be said!
There never was, and there never will be.

Para #71 from Volume 16, Part 1
of Paul Brunton's Enlightened Mind, Divine Mind
Notebooks: "World-Mind in Individual Mind—
    No mortal may penetrate the mystery of the ultimate mind in its
own nature— which means in its static inactive being. The Godhead is not only beyond
human conception but also beyond mystic perception. But Mind in its active dynamic state,
that is, the World-Mind, and rather its ray in us called the Overself, is within range of
human perception, communion, and even union. It is this that the mystic really finds when
be believes that he has found God.
    Lao Tzu was a librarian by profession, Janaka a king, and Brother Lawrence a kitchen
menial. Yet all had this same wonderful experience of peaceful communion with Overself,
proving that one's antecedents, or work, or position are neither helps nor handicaps.
    John Burroughs: "With Emerson dead, it seems folly to be alive. No man of just his type
and quality has ever before appeared upon the earth. He looked like a god. That wise, serene,
pure, inscrutable look was without parallel in any human face I ever saw. Such an unimpeachable
look! The subtle, half-defined smile of his soul. It was not a propitiatory smile, or a smirk of
acquiescence, but the reassuring smile of the doctor when he takes out his lance; it was the
sheath of that trenchant blade of his. Behind it lurked some test question, or pregnant saying.
It was the foil of his frank, unwounding wit, like Carlyle's laugh. It was an arch, winning,
half-playful look, the expression of a soul that did not want to wound you, and yet that must
speak the truth. And Emerson's frank speech never did wound. It was so evident that it was
not meant to wound, & that it was so true to himself, that you treasured it as rare wisdom."
    The awareness that he existed on this planet made its grievous and troubled life more
bearable, gave a little meaning to what seemed otherwise quite chaotic. For his own higher
development reminded, nay assured, us that there was some sort of an evolution going on,
that there was a goal and a purpose behind it all. Thus, merely to know that this man was
alive, even though we might never again meet him and could never hope to become intimate
with him, sustained our faith in Life itself and helped us to live.
    It is essential to find a reliable guide who can indicate the higher studies which
should be pursued; knowing this, the sage will gladly give his services to those
aspirants who seek him out.
Para #71 from Volume 16, Part 2 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "World-Idea"—
    Just as the World-Idea is both the expression of the World-Mind and one with it,
so the Word (Logos) mentioned in the New Testament as being with God is another
way of saying the same thing. The world with its form and history is the embodiment
of the Word and the Word is the World-Idea. (1.71)
    The cosmos has its own integral balance, or it could not remain a cosmos.
And it must keep this balance all the time and in all places.
    The Unseen Power, Al (without beginning) lah (without end), is One.
Every other kind of power derives from It. And this holds true even of the little power which a
little ant shows. Hence the energies of a human being are linked with It. From this we may deduce
that he is unaware of, and not using, all his potential resources. (4.71)
Para #71 from Volume 16, Part 3 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "World-Mind"—
    No human idea can account for its own existence without testifying to the prior
existence of a human mind. The world as idea can only account for its own existence by pointing to
a World-Mind. And it is equally a fact that the highest kind of existence discoverable to us in the
universe is mental existence. In using the name "Mind" for God, I but follow some of the highest
examples from antiquity, such as Aristotle in Greece, Hermes Trismegistus in Egypt, Asvaghosha
in India, and the Patriarch Hui Neng in China.
    Energy is expression in movement of the unseen substance. Matter is
its apparent form. All things are made from it. We are a part of it.
Para #71 from Volume 16, Part 4 of Paul Brunton's Notebooks: "The Alone"—
    The world is not self-existent but MIND is. (1.71)
    Words circumscribe meaning, confine it by the very act of defining it. But the Real
is infinite, outside all circumscription and beyond all inclusion. If you must express it,
you may do so correctly only by silence. But it is essentially inexpressible.
187) "The Power of Affirmation" is Lesson 71
of Subramuniyaswami's Merging with Siva (1999):
    The power of affirmation changes and remolds the putty-like substance that makes up the
subconscious areas of the mind. For years we have repeated sayings & statements, attached
meaning to them in our thoughts & through listening to ourselves speak. This has helped form
our life as we know it today, for the subconscious brings into manifestation the impressions we
put into it. Therefore, to change the subconscious pattern and increase the spinning velocity of it,
we must remold with new ideas and new concepts its magnetic forces. This can be done through
the power of affirmation. Affirmation, when used in wisdom for spiritual reasons, is a power, and
should be understood through meditation. Before beginning to work with an affirmation, we must
understand completely from within what we are doing, being sure that when our subconscious has
been remolded we can take the added responsibilities, the new adventures and challenges that will
manifest as a result of breaking out of one force field and entering into another. Only when we face
and accept fully the new effects of our effort should we proceed with an affirmation. First we must
understand the nature of this power. An affirmation is a series of positive words repeated time and
time again in line with a visual concept. Such a statement can be repeated mentally or, preferably, verbally... If one feels,
"I can't", he cannot. Begin by repeating the affirmation fifty or a hundred times a day. The aggressive forces of your nature
are trying to take over and reprogram the passive ones that have been in charge for so many years. The aggressive forces
will win if you will persist with your verbal and visual affirmation. You must not give up saying, "I can. I will. I am able,"
until you find the subconscious structure actually creating situations for you in which you can and are able to be successful,
happy and acquire what you need, be it temporal goods or un-fold-ment on the inner path.

is titled "Eastern Slope" (1081):
A little stream used to cross my land,
came from the mountain pass back there,
under city walls, through villages—
the current sluggish and choked with grass—
feeding finally into K'o Clan Pond,
ten mou stocked with fish and shrimp.
Drought this year dried it up,
its cracked bed plastered with brown duckweed.
Last night clouds came from hills to the south;
rain soaked the ground a plowshare deep.
Rivulets found the channel again,
knowing I'd chopped back the weeds.
In the mud a few old roots of cress
still alive from a year ago.
If white buds will open again,
when spring doves come I'll make a stew!

is "Get the Blame Straight"
Understanding the physics of God,
His Indivisible Nature,
Makes every universe and atom confess:
I am just a helpless puppet that cannot dance
Without the movement of His hand.
Dear ones,
This curriculum tonight is for the advanced
And will
Get all the blame straight,
End the mental

And he that won was not angered, as well you will know.
All this mirth they made until meat was served;

Go thou to the company of the good,
  where the Beloved One
  has His dwelling place:
Take all thy thoughts and love
  and instruction from thence.
Let that assembly be burnt to ashes
  where His Name is not spoken!
Tell me, how couldst thou hold a
  wedding-feast, if the bridegroom
  himself were not there?
Waver no more, think only of the Beloved;
Set not thy heart on the worship of
  other gods, there is no worth in
  the worship of other masters.
Kabir deliberates and says:
  "Thus thou shalt never
  find the Beloved!

Depth of love that the writer experienced
in 71st Sonnet (1609) of William Shakespeare:
No longer mourn for me when I am dead
Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell
Give warning to the world that I am fled
From this vile world with vilest worms to dwell:
Nay, if you read this line, remember not
The hand that writ it, for I love you so,
That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot,
If thinking on me then should make you woe.
O! if, I say, you look upon this verse,
When I perhaps compounded am with clay,
Do not so much as my poor name rehearse;
But let your love even with my life decay;
    Lest the wise world should look into your moan,
    And mock you with me after I am gone.

John Newton's "Olney Hymn 71":
The LORD receives his highest praise,
From humble minds and hearts sincere;
While all the loud professor says,
Offends the righteous Judge's ear.

To walk as children of the day
To mark the precepts' holy light
To wage the warfare, watch and pray,
Show who are pleasing in his sight.

Not words alone it cost the LORD,
To purchase pardon for his own;
Nor with a soul, by grace restored,
Return the Savior words alone.

With golden bells, the priestly vest,
And rich pomegranates bordered round,
The need of holiness expressed,
And called for fruit, as well as sound.

Easy, indeed, it were to reach
A mansion in the courts above,
If swelling words, and fluent speech
Might serve, instead of faith and love.

But none shall gain the blissful place,
Or GOD'S unclouded glory see;
Who talks of free and sovereign grace,
Unless that grace has made him free.

"Flying from something that he dreads"
in Line 71 of Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey":
And now, with gleams of half-extinguished thought,
With many recognitions dim and faint,
And somewhat of a sad perplexity,
The picture of the mind revives again:
While here I stand, not only with the sense
Of present pleasure, but with pleasing thoughts
That in this moment there is life and food
For future years. And so I dare to hope,
Though changed, no doubt, from what I was when first
I came among these hills; when like a roe
I bounded o'er the mountains, by the sides
Of the deep rivers, and the lonely streams,
Wherever nature led: more like a man
Flying from something that he dreads, than one
Who sought the thing he loved. For nature then

in Line 71 of Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner":
At length did cross an Albatross,
Thorough the fog it came;
As if it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God's name.
It ate the food it ne'er had eat,
And round and round it flew.
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!
And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The Albatross did follow,

201) Chapter 71 of Melville's Moby-Dick (1851) is "The Jeroboam's Story":
Hand in hand, ship and breeze blew on; but the breeze came faster than the ship,
and soon the Pequod began to rock... The Pequod's signal was at last responded to by
the stranger's setting her own; which proved the ship to be the Jeroboam of Nantucket.
On board was one who had been originally nurtured among the crazy society of Neskyeuna
Shakers, where he had been a great prophet; in their cracked, secret meetings having several
times descended from heaven by the way of a trapdoor, announcing the speedy opening of
the seventh vial, which he carried in his vest-pocket; but, which, instead of containing
gunpowder, was supposed to be charged with laudanum... He announced himself as
the archangel Gabriel, and commanded the captain to jump overboard. He published
his manifesto, whereby he set himself forth as the deliverer of the isles of the sea and
vicar-general of all Oceanica... Moreover, they were afraid of him. As such a man, however,
was not of much practical use in the ship, especially as he refused to work except when he
pleased,.. The sailors, mostly poor devils, cringed, and some of them fawned before him;
in obedience to his instructions, sometimes rendering him personal homage, as to a god.
Such things may seem incredible; but, however wondrous, they are true.

I've known permission given
To rejoin its own.

The psalm in the country church or mid the clustering trees,

71st Verse in Tagore's Gitanjali:
That I should make much of myself and turn it on all sides,
thus casting coloured shadows on thy radiance— such is thy maya.
Thou settest a barrier in thine own being and then callest thy severed
self in myriad notes. This thy self-separation has taken body in me.
The poignant song is echoed through all the sky in many-coloured tears
and smiles, alarms and hopes; waves rise up and sink again,
dreams break and form. In me is thy own defeat of self.
This screen that thou hast raised is painted with innumerable figures
with the brush of the night and the day. Behind it thy seat is woven
in wondrous mysteries of curves, casting away all barren lines of straightness.
The great pageant of thee & me has overspread the sky. With the tune of thee and
me all the air is vibrant, & all ages pass with the hiding & seeking of thee and me.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)
Gitanjali: Song Offerings (1912), Verse 71

Rabindranath Tagore
71st Page of A.E.'s Song and Its Fountains (1932)
I do not think we shall ever come to truth otherwise than by such
gropings in the cave of the soul, when with shut eyes we are in a
dim illuminated darkness, and seek through transient transparencies
to peer into the profundities of being. It is the most exciting of all
adventures, the exploration of the psyche, even though the windows
out of which which we gaze are soon darkened for us by our own bodily
emanations. Yet there are enchanted moments when we have vision,
however distant, of the divinities who uphold the universe.

208) Sonnet 71 in Edna St. Vincent Millay's Collected Sonnets (1941)
This beast that rends me in the sight of all,
This love, this longing, this oblivious thing,
That has me under as the last leaves fall,
Will glut, will sicken, will be gone by spring.
The wound will heal, the fever will abate,
The knotted hurt will slacken in the breast;
I shall forget before the flickers mate
Your look that is today my east and west.
Unscathed, however, from a claw so deep
Though I should love again I shall not go:
Along my body, waking while I sleep,
Sharp to the kiss, cold to the hand as snow,
The scar of this encounter like a sword
Will lie between me and my troubled lord.

209) Poem 71 is "The Fifth"
in Anna Akhmatova's Selected Poems (2006)
I, like a river,
Have been turned aside by this harsh age.
I am a substitute. My life has flowed
Into another channel
And I do not recognize my shores.
O, how many fine sights I have missed,
How many curtains have risen without me
And fallen too. How many of my friends
I have not met even once in my life,
How many city skylines
Could have drawn tears from my eyes,
I who know only the one city
And by touch, in my sleep, I could find it ...
And how many poems I have not written,
Whose secret chorus swirls around my head
And possibly one day
Will stifle me ...
I know the beginnings and the ends of things,
And life after the end, and something
It isn't necessary to remember now.
And another woman has usurped
The place that ought to have been mine,
And bears my rightful name,
Leaving me a nickname, with which I've done,
I like to think, all that was possible.
But I, alas, won't lie in my own grave.

Love crosses its islands, from grief to grief,
it sets roots, watered with tears,
and no one— no one— can escape the heart's progress
as it runs, silent and carnivorous.

You and I searched for a wide valley, for another planet
where the salt wouldn't touch your hair,
where sorrows couldn't grow because of anything I did,
where bread could live and not grow old.

A planet entwined with vistas and foliage,
a plain, a rock, hard and unoccupied:
we wanted to build a strong nest

with our own hands, without hurt or harm or speech,
but love was not like that: love was a lunatic city
with crowds of people blanching on their porches.

Poem 71 of The Collected Poems of Kenneth Koch:
is "Hearing"—
Hear the beautiful tinny voices of the trumpets
Beside the rushing sound of the great blue waterfall;
See the guns fire, then hear the leaves drop to the ground;
Lie back in your chair— and now there is the clatter of pennies!
The familiar scraping noise of the chair feet on the ground,
As if a worm had grown six feet tall! And here is the worm,
And hear his soft scraping noise at the forest gate...
All is not stillness— far from it. The tinny
Trumpets renew their song among the eglantine's
Too speciously gracious brilliance, and a hen drops
An egg, with infinite gentleness, into the straw.

(There are 118 poems in this edition; Poem 71 is "Standing Up")
Standing Up
It's been a hard winter, but summer is here and the fields want us to walk
upright. Every man unimpeded, but careful, as when you stand up in a
small boat. I remember a day in Africa: on the banks of the Chari, there
were many boats, an atmosphere positively friendly, the men almost
blue-black in color with three parallel scars on each cheek (meaning
the Sara tribe). I am welcomed on a boat— it's a canoe hollowed from a
dark tree. The canoe is incredibly wobbly, even when you sit on your heels.
A balancing act. If you have the heart on the left side you have to lean
a bit to the right, nothing in the pockets, no big arm movements, please,
all rhetoric has to be left behind. Precisely, rhetoric is impossible here.
The canoe glides out over the water.

Is there some odor
which is anger,

a face

I think I think
but find myself in it.

The pattern
is only resemblance.

I cannot see myself
but as what I see, an

object but a man.

with lust for forgiveness,
raging, from that vantage,
secure in the purpose,

double, split.
Is it merely intention,

a sign quickly adapted,
shifted to make

a horrible place
for self-satisfaction.

I rage.
I rage, I rage.

Frost has made clouds of weeds overnight.

Near a fireplace, near delicate cups. I loved that afternoon, and the rest of my life.

"Love's Constancy" (translated by Mother Columba Hart)
Love has subjugated me:
To me this is no surprise,
For she is strong and I am weak.
She makes me
Unfree of myself,
Continually against my will.
She does with me what she wishes;
Nothing of myself remains to me;
Formerly I was rich,
Now I am poor: everything is lost in love.
