I got all your poems 🙂 I look forward to reading them Rita 🙂
This is one of the first poems that spoke to me 🙂
by Linda Pastan
Just looking at them
I grow greedy, as if they were freshly baked loaves
waiting on their shelves
to be broken open–that one
and that–and I make my choice
in a mood of exalted luck,
browsing among them
like a cow in sweetest pasture.
For life is continuous
as long as they wait
to be read–these inked paths
opening into the future, page
after page, every book
its own receding horizon.
And I hold them, one in each hand,
a curious ballast weighting me
here to the earth.
–Linda Pastan, Carnival Evening
