The July Grass (paragraph 4)

stays without
it stays
among it was among
that the wind home may take the wind in the sway
in and sway motion
and the motion
the pollen of the dusting
of the dusting panicle
the panicle of the colour of
and colour
shape and the shape
curve of curve
degree of and degree
droop and the droop
stems the stems
of the slenderness of
and slenderness
height and the height
gather them
you gather as you consider
as must consider you must
glass you green glass
old green in old deep
in imitated deep reeds
imitated the reeds
like the aslant like stems
aslant larger stems
the larger cut
the harvest cut
this harvest of this sheaf 
in a stream
in the stream
by the trees
by hollow trees
the hollow inside the inside
look too ruts
look deep ruts
deep in the lanes
in the lanes look for
may look you may
roadside you mere roadside
by them grow
of the marsh
some brackish marsh
the brackish
in the sea
in the sea
or by grasses
or find grasses
to find where to is where
that is quarries
old quarries
old cornfields
angles of woods
angles of woods enclosure
of the enclosure inside
just inside
ponds just of ponds
weeds gone there and gone
been and has been
foundations where
abandoned foundations
from abandoned cast up mounds
cast the mounds
the buildings on incomplete buildings
behind incomplete places
look too the gateway
look near the lane
near the lane of the banks
of the banks on the wayside
on the wayside by there
by them there
taken them has taken
scythe has acres
the scythe broad acres
broad and not places
and out of the way places
and out of the way corners
and in corners
looked for looked
must be grasses
July grasses
