MISSOURI POEMS

FROM PAUMANOK STARTING – Walt Whitman Poem From Paumanock starting, I fly like a bird, around and around to soar, to sing the idea of all. To the north betaking myself, to sing there arctic songs, to Kanada, till I absorb Kanada in myself-to Michigan then, to Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, to sing their songs, (they are inimitable). Then to Ohio ...

SELECTED POLISH POEMS

ALLEGRO MA NON TROPPO – Poetry by Wislawa Szymborska Life, you’re beautiful (I say), you just couldn’t get more fecund, more befrogged or nightingaily, more anthillful or sproutspouting. I’m trying to court life’s favor, to get into its good graces, to anticipate its whims. I’m always the first to bow, always there where it can see me, with my humble, ...

THE MAP OF TRUTH – Poem by Dastilige Nevante

THE MAP OF TRUTH In a sea of waves, without a map and words, reach the Isle of Solitude. From all its shores wet, to dry in the emotion of the eyes. ASTONISHMENT, poems loose in the winter.

PRELUDE – Oh air of evening wrap me, now that I die again. When it will close my eyes, there will be no sea for boats of tears. I go and leave you closed all the rain. But I will return again to every season that I want. I was the sadness of the world. Oh air of evening wrap ...

HEAVEN MELT THE RIME, OVER TEXAS

TOPOGRAPHY – Poetry by Sharon Olds After we flew across the country we got in bed, laid our bodies delicately together, like maps laid face to face, East to West, my San Francisco against your New York, your Fire Island against my Sonoma, my New Orleans deep in your Texas, your Idaho bright on my Great Lakes, my Kansas burning ...

BEAUTIFUL DREAMS IN NEW MEXICO

EVENING IN NEW MEXICO – Poetry by Andrew Downing Far off the Rio Grande crawls, a silver serpent in the sand. And sweetly, softly, slowly falls the shade of twilight on the land. The mockingbird, that all the day has piped, entangling note with note, in merry song, and roundelay, has quelled the lyrics in his throat. In meditation, buried ...

ARIZONA POEMS

HEATHROW, IN TRANSIT – By James Watters The warmth of Nairobi in January is gone now. Here it’s cold and drizzly, a savannah of tarmac and metal jumbos before me. My natural rhythms have given way, to this soaring erratic chase of the sun. But I return to warmth, the desert heat of southern Arizona, and the ardent glow, of ...
