Biography of Laura Jean Kelly

Laura Jean Kelly is an American poet. Updates


Oh catch me with silver ropes, braided with starlight,
And bind me with lightning all strung with gray pearls,
And saw off my horn with a blade of steel, tempered
In the fires of Mount Fury, and shear off my curls,

And still you won't have me! I'll slip through your fingers,
Your long grasping fingers, your ropes and your chains,
And a fast-falling star that is burnt to a cinder
In your hand, is all you'll have left for your pains.
