* THE GOD IN YOU


The God in heaven
No,
The God in you
I see him a clear blue
As you sleep warm
in my arms
And wriggle around your charms
Clasping your soft
tiny fingers
surrounding my neck.
On my cheek
You hissing soft breath
Of curdled milk and honey
Look ing up the stars and moon
And counting the thousand blessings
And see God come to me
In every single bit of you

    All night your moth-breath
    flickers among the flat pink roses.I wake to listen:
    a far sea moves in my ear.
    One cry and i stumble from bed, cow heavy and floral
    in my victorian night-gown.
    your mouth opens clean as a cat's...

    plath....

    a mother's love in all its depths.... (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
