Sappho and Phaon: Sonnet III / by Mary Robinson

kimdir

Turn to yon vale beneath, whose tangled shade

Excludes the blazing torch of noon-day light,
Where sportive Fawns, and dimpled Loves invite,
The bow’r of Pleasure opens to the glade:
Lull’d by soft flutes, on leaves of violets laid,
There witching beauty greets the ravish’d sight,
More gentle than the arbitress of night
In all her silv’ry panoply array’d! Devamını Oku

The Gods Are in the Valley / by Dana Levin

Dana-Levin-poem
The mind sports god-extensions.


It’s the mountain from which
the tributaries spring: self, self, self, self–

rivering up
on curling plumes
from his elaborate
head-piece

of smoke. Devamını Oku

The Wife-Woman / by Anne Spencer

Anne_Spencer

Maker-of-Sevens in the scheme of things
From earth to star;
Thy cycle holds whatever is fate, and
Over the border the bar.
Though rank and fierce the mariner
Sailing the seven seas,
He prays as he holds his glass to his eyes,
Coaxing the Pleiades. Devamını Oku

Opening Gambit / by Michael McGriff

Michael-McGriff

Two decommissioned highways cross
and continue toward their borders
with the casual certainty
the dead carry in their sample cases.
Leaning against the wind
I notice tufts of fur in the air
and a driveshaft rising from the sand,
then the horsehair of a violinist’s bow
drawn steadily across my neck. Devamını Oku

english-poem

Your names toll in my dreams.
I pick up tinsel in the street. A nameless god
streaks my hand with blood. I look at the lighted trees
in windows & the spindles of pine tremble
in warm rooms. The flesh of home, silent. Devamını Oku

Now we could have been a child thereabouts

child-and-war

Now we could have been a child thereabouts

For example, in Jerusalem,

 Could have thrown a stone to the wailing wall,

Could have made a mother cry,

Shot in the middle of the heart with a bullet,

Having played blind man’s buff with the tanks

Could have been tagged with the guns there,

Could have been a child in Jerusalem,

Could have been an angel in Al- Aqsa Mosque. Devamını Oku
