(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

Flowing along with the tide


if you wish to know
the heart of a land
go to its best river
and hear how it sings

if you wish to really know
how the people
of a land feel go to
its greatest river
and see how it flows

and if you wish to live
with the land go to
its holiest river and
make a vow to swim
to the tune of its tide

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
