There Is A Girl Inside - Poem by Lucille Clifton

There is a girl inside.
She is randy as a wolf.
She will not walk away and leave these bones
to an old woman.

She is a green tree in a forest of kindling.
She is a greeen girl in a used poet.

She has waited patient as a nun
for the second coming,
when she can break through gray hairs
into blossom

and her lovers will harvest
honey and thyme
and the woods will be wild
with the damn wonder of it.

    The more I read this woman, the more I understand my nature. She was a blessing to women and men too if they would listen and ponder the wisdom of her life experiences (Report) Reply
