(JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)

Found


The labour of quiet inner thought,
there is no payment!

But the idea of self manoeuvring,
somewhere else,
or to encounter somewhere,
where all seems lost,

But is it, only if one
tells oneself, this
has happened or must be...

It's there...
It's not there...

Unless the light deceives,

At that, suspended feeling,

Then fade to the right
of a complete strangers eyes,

hesitant, don't know you...

No I don't even know what I know?

Even after years of rehearsals,

Words that we hear and fear
after years and years,

Of self implication!

Did I actually find out,
what I really wanted to find out?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
