In The Long City


In the long city
There’s a wall of ivy
And meandering boughs
And sprig lets
Flourishing.

Around on the lawn
Roam the cats and
Mice.

Holy the scents
Rises
The heavens open
Now
Then close
Then again
Open.

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.
