WINTER 2018-2019


Kate Kelly


necklace of sky
keeps sparrow from falling,
fragile and tender and strong;
she speaks in soft tongue
unutterable love;
so expert an arrow
and so perfect the song.
beloved consume me,
cinder my lips and embrace,
then straight to the palace
oh radiant pilgrim -
your praises be sung and beauty unveiled;
so marvelous is
so perfect the song.
