New Year's Eve


It's New Year's Eve, Mom
And you are still spending it
Utterly alone, cold
Six feet under ground
Another year I can't rescue you
Another year we miss you
And another year our hearts break
Because a cell's division
Stubbornly refused
To make room for you
And because the heavens
In cold indifference
Left you to perish
Along with our better selves
Like a hero you raged against that night
If only I could be hero enough
To accept your passing
In the meanwhile
I'll hold you close
Despite your distance
And stubbornly refuse
To let you go.

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,
