A group of lines
arranged together.
The sea creeps to pillage,
She leaps on her prey;
A child of the village
Was murdered today.
She came up to meet him
In a smooth golden cloak,
She choked him and beat him
To death, for a joke.
Her bright locks were tangled,
She shouted for joy,
With one hand she strangled
A strong little boy.
Now in silence she lingers
Beside him all night
To wash her long fingers
In silvery light.

My Enemy Was Dreaming

when I found my enemy sleeping
i stood over him as still
as the owl at night
as the heron waiting for fish
i raised my knife to kill him

then I saw my enemy was dreaming
his mouth made a little smile
his legs trembled
he made small sleep sounds
only I will have this memory
i will show the others
only the horse of my enemy
i will not tell the others
i left my enemy dreaming
Richard Cory
Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown
Clean favored and imperially slim.
And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
“Good-morning,” and he glittered when he walked
And he was rich - yes, richer than a kingAnd admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.
So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.

I'm a lean dog, a keen dog, a wild dog, and lone;

from sleep.

Wolves
Last night I heard wolves howling,
their voices coming from afar
over the wind-polished ice – so much
brave solitude in that sound
They are death’s snowbound sailors;
they know only a continual
drifting between moonlit islands,
their tongues licking the stars.
But they sing as good seamen should,
and tomorrow the sun will find them,
yawning and blinking
the snow from their eyelashes.
Their voices rang through the frozen
water of my human sleep.

that were in

Forgive me

so sweet
and so cold

The “Century Quilt”
Woman’s stories
have often been
silenced so the
Century Quilt
reminds us that…
The “Century Quilt”
The women of the
past left us texts of
coarse wool, fine
wool, satin, lace,
burlap, silk,
brocade, and hemp.
The “Century Quilt”
The hope is that we
present day readers
can learn to read
such texts and gain
a sense of the past
and a sense of…
The “Century Quilt”
…the spiritual hope
of those women
that recorded
history and then
then created these
quilts as…
The “Century Quilt”
…a testament to
their strength as
they were often
surrounded by
death and
destruction.

quilt, we could
understand a great
part of our cultural
history.

In its most basic
existence, a
patchwork quilt, like
any blanket is just a
means to keep out
the cold.
The “Century Quilt”
In “The Century
Quilt” the poems
speaker simply
hoped to inherit her
grandmother’s
special Indian
blanket…
The “Century Quilt”
But it went to her
sister instead. So,
cutoff from this
inheritance, she
found a quilt “I’d
like to die under”
The “Century Quilt”
This one is a
covering that will
not only warm her,
but seems to have
some of the same
magic as the
grandmother’s quilt.
The “Century Quilt”
It too can inspire
dreams. The colors of
the squares
symbolizes the blend
of cultures from which
the speaker springs.
The “Century Quilt”
This new quilt is one
she is sure will bring
good dreams.
