« WHAT I'M READING: Charles Bernstein [by Andrei Codrescu] | Main | “The Apology Day breakfast” by Ali Cobby Eckermann [Introduced by Thomas Moody] »

January 22, 2024


"The unreached paradise of our despair..." Childe Harold, which I read thanks to you.

Happy Birthday George Gordon, sweet light.
A sequel poem to inspire your spirit.

We'll Rove and Rove

Rest has healed the weary scars,
Love rekindled, wings unfurl,
But the moonlit magic spars
With the shadows of the world.

We'll chase the night's enchanting trance,
Laughter echoing, hearts aglow,
Yet dawn will steal the moonlit dance,
And leave us yearning, soft and low.

Still, we'll rove, forever bound,
By whispers starlight cannot quell,
Though echoes of the past resound,
The moonlit heart remembers well.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
