My Fantasy


I would have to drink up the entire ocean
Just to get close to you
But then, I would be as large
As all the earths surface
Worse, I would slosh when I walked
Making you sea sick
And you would have to keep moving
Farther and farther away
To avoid becoming ill-
I guess I won't drink up the ocean.

I would breathe in all the air
In the whole sky above
Just to get nearer you
But then, I would be as expanded
As all of the atmosphere
Gaseous and free floating
And you would have to wear a parachute
And gas mask too
Just to hang there long enough to talk
In the airless vacuum that remained-
I guess I won't breathe in all the air.

I would cross all of space
Just for a moment to be beside you
To see again your glowing face
And feel the warmth of that large heart
And so, I have decided that I will become a meteor
Charging fearlessly around the universe
Spinning, gyrating through the spacious spaces
And I won't be too large or encompassing
To make you afraid to come near
And I will come with a rhythm, as do the seasons
So you always will know the time of my approach
And the time of my leaving.
I will always leave, but then return again:
And if you wanted,
You could become a satellite, too-
And you could blink mechanically, at me
As I whooshed by in the close darkness.

Poem of the Day

poet Joyce Kilmer

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
