    here is a quote from an interview that fairchild did for WRITE magazine (Volume I, Issue 2, Summer 2000, Darthmouth College) : 'There is one particular poem in The Art of the Lathe where I've always known that it didn't have the right last lines, and I still haven't found the last lines. It's the poem 'Song.' It's the elegy for my father. And the last lines are 'and dreams of the men with wings of fire and steel.' It's okay - it was okay to get it published, you know. But it's just not right, I just know it's not, ' (Report) Reply

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
