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 Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
