(1925 / Chicago)

Paramita


Life is a dance
in an unknowing universe-
without an audience.
So we must give life
it’s perfect meaning,
for God cannot.

Do not protest,
for no one listens.
Cry and cry
in the darkness.
Be brave.
Be quiet.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
