Young Child Racing The Wind


running through grass running
wind blown grass running
young child racing the wind
racing running like the wind

wind is swift fleet fast
everywhere grass bent
everywhere at same time
fleet gust swept wind time

blowing speeding
bending over fold
bent grass blades

suddenly childhood is
racing by racing running
running running gone

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
