Treasure Island

Christine Natale

(August 9,1955 / Glen Ridge, New Jersey)

In the Absence of Men


This peace is a remembrance
For future times when I myself
Am torn in two -
When the spirit of another invades my soul
And tears me from myself;
When passion storms arise
Within my womb
And there is nothing
But imagined death
To give me rest again
When all is done.

This peace is a remembrance
And a testing of the heart
To seal me sunlit stained
In my own soul
As though my thoughts
Could be preserved
And safely guarded in the dark
As diamonds in the coal.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
