OCTOBER: A POEM IN THREE PARTS
by Alice B. Clagett
October 2001

The Day Slips by …

The day slips by,
My own dear heart
. . . locked in thy warm embrace,

This mortal frame
. . . unbelievably
. . . caught fraught with Thy infinity

Packless, my Weary Back

Packless, my weary back
. . . molded to the soft-sloped, slate ribs
. . . . . . of this staid mountain,

I await the sun.

Heavy on My Heart

These grey clouds
. . . lie heavy on my heart
Concealing as they do
. . . that which I most would see.

Whither to go, and what to find?

Worlds upon worlds,
. . . age after age,
. . . that vast blue sky
. . . twinkles within me.

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
