The Queen's Dagger

(July 31 1997 / Vermont)

A Mysterious Gift


You make me bow to accept your gift.
A box labeled 'joy' with binding ties.
Its bows glisten with enticing poison,
its silver paper glitters like a stolen gem.
It steals your heart away
with a wink and a smile.

It holds out its arms,
but I am no fool.
I see what you really are.
Yet what is that exactly?

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
