Could you please post the poems 'Muse' and 'Mushrooms' by Sylvia Plath here? I really want to read them, but can't find them anywhere.

I can't get a link anywhere. Of course, you just have to acknowledge it. But that's not gonna be a problem is it, mod?

I will see what I can do about getting them posted here, I will look into it, and if I can find the poems I will post them.

I have Mushrooms for you, and I will keep looking for Muse.

Mushrooms


Overnight, very
Whitely, discreetly,
Very quietly

Our toes, our noses
Take hold on the loam,
Acquire the air.

Nobody sees us,
Stops us, betrays us;
The small grains make room.

Soft fists insist on
Heaving the needles,
The leafy bedding,

Even the paving.
Our hammers, our rams,
Earless and eyeless,

Perfectly voiceless,
Widen the crannies,
Shoulder through holes. We

Diet on water,
On crumbs of shadow,
Bland-mannered, asking

Little or nothing.
So many of us!
So many of us!

We are shelves, we are
Tables, we are meek,
We are edible,

Nudgers and shovers
In spite of ourselves.
Our kind multiplies:

We shall by morning
Inherit the earth.
Our foot's in the door.
