intuitions rise

i do not know how intuitions rise
in other people whom i have not met
so many things i work hard to forget
keep out of sight and learn how to despise
but not so much as those who would apprise
all of the folk who would take up the bet
and then run off before the yolk had set
such sights do not soon come before your eyes
yet if not known the emblems yet unseen
have to be built up in the waiting mind
by those who learn to speak in sacred voices
of all the massive powers that have yet been
in all those places where they were confined
and how though in deep pain mankind rejoices
