Iris Rapoport


No Name Yet


Lives, spread about
Like so many leaves
Scattered on stone floor
With no dirt or soil
I would like to replant them,
Make them grow tall and strong
Revive them, help them
Carry them on

But I know that I can't
Their time to live has long passed
To revive them would be
A violation of Nature's rights.
So I turn my back,
And I walk away,
I close my eyes,
Tears streaming down my face.
And it's sad, and it hurts, and it's hard just to leave,
But I know what I did was the right thing to do,
Because whatever you do,
Time is stronger than you.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
