Memory About A Girl


A memory housed in alcoves
Like jeroboams of champagne
Weightless in her steps –tip toe
On crooked toes, a Russian ballerina
Paprika, cinnamon, and ginger
With a drop of lemon dew
Three savory syllables of a name
Brought to my parched lips, tasted
On a bed of buds for summer’s play
Like two icebergs in paradise

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.
