Cusp


North is capricorn's
cardinal earth
and sagittarian
mutable fire.

South is gemini's
mutable air and
cancer's
cardinal water.

East is aries'
cardinal fire
and pisces'
mutable water.

West is libra's
cardinal air
and virgo's
mutable earth.

On revolves
the wheel...
Around August
21st the stars
wink
over the
mutable earth
and fixed fire
of the virginheaded
lionbodied
sphinx.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
