Linda Hepner Poems
Oh how close I come to paring off my parchment skin
And on it I shall write: if all else fails
This you shall send to those I’ve harbored, allies, foe and kin:
And let’s us fall there. Then we scramble up
And trudge along, bearing our earthly goods.
I’ll just describe it. I was on my bed
Soaking the sun and reading ‘Life and Fate’
Vasili Grossman wrote app. ’38,
Pushed by the apple man who’d piled it high
For instance on a Sabbath afternoon
When book in hand I lie down in the den
A glass of tea, some honey and a spoon
It came back yesterday, the dream that’s real;
Though sleeping dreamless, waiting for the dawn,
It woke my thoughts, a sinking, last appeal
Rejected. Face the music, mourn.
