Of Muses And Other Ghosts

(7 march 1988)

Alone


I remember being a child
sleeping with my head against your heart.
I remember being afraid of the dark
and you, lighting fires in my eyes.
I remember being loved by you
and I remember giving you love back.
I remember you alive, but
why is your name on this stone
why am I alone?

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
