Unsatisfied


for Maya

Increasingly unsatisfied
by my own usual poems,
I think about writing newly,
telling you what I’ve
done that matters most.

I don’t know where to begin:
early/late, political/not.

I do know I want to write
What I will want to read.

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.
