A Proclamation - Revisited [23 Years Later]


Last night
The heavens held me.

I embraced them
As countless times before.

Again tonight
They've absorbed me -
Have forced me
To write these words;

' Cosmos,
Take one millionth
Of a second.
Silence
Your incessant H u u u u u u u u u u. '

' Listen to me. '

' I still love you! '

' Did you hear that? '

' Know it! '

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
