What the Orphan Knows About Light


.
for Anna Kamienska**

'I don't believe in the other world
...But I don't believe in this one either
unless it's pierced by light.' - A. Kamienska


Hidden behind a star
the ash sings without self-pity -

stake your claim in Beauty.

Jab the mausoleum
majesty of State
in the eye.

Here is your key, little one.
Now run quickly home.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
