Celia


Celia,
You are green:
Fresh and young and true.
Time nor age nor scalding pain
Has burnt out
The living parts in you.
But where the old has gone,
A new shoot has grown
Out of the recesses of the old.

You are green and will grow
Greener every day -
Sprouting new shoots and leaves and flowers
Throughout the entire season
Of your existence.

You are a living thing
Not dead wood - no elaborate
Carved and polished structure are you,
Celia.

You are a poet's dream.
The pessimist's hope- the cynic's belief
You are my love
A great relief
After all my lessons
In mundane earth forms:
Studies that choked me
Till you brought the breath back Celia,
Fresh and young,
And true.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
