Emancipated Proclamation Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

Emancipated Proclamation



Thou asks how far the wind blows
in fact I cannot tell
Or then how high the heavens
my prayers deep in the well

Thou asks if love comes truly
to one in greatest need
My answer spoken duly
of romance undecreed

Thou asks if truth be spoken
or written timeless down
My speech in patterns broken
unlettered and unfound

Thou asks if time be measured
beyond the last refrain
This moment hides the answer
—of that I can proclaim

(Dreamsleep: September,2022)
