Evening Hymn


Route 23, Butler, New Jersey,5: 30 P.M.,
traffic barely moving,
ahead, a redhead in a Jetta,
in end-of-the-day abandon,
trailing on the bumper is the epiphany:
‘Eve was framed’.
There she is, cruising self-possessed,
with that arcane revelation.
Not burdened by an old yoke,
just an heir’s flamboyance.

(2001)

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
