The Fall


The stand before the fall,
Felt nothing much for me.
The fall and it's hurt,
Meant different things to me.

The fall consisted of hurt,

As I caught myself against a tree,
I tightened my grip.

I swayed in a motion that gave,
Into another fall still.
But the way I handled it,
Was the victory in the fall.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
