A Nano-Flutter's Grace


Tonight, now,
in joyous rebellion,
I will shake my hair loose
and pluck
a lightning flash
to wrap my spirit
in the pulse of
thunder-drums
and poetry colours
and slow-soaked peace,
and I will twirl them
around my fingers
and my shoulders
like an untamed, rainbow scarf
and I will dance them
barefoot on cool, wet grass
... till the white thunder dies
... and the clock ticks again
... and the work shouts
my name.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
