Poetry Thursdays

I don’t know if this is legal or not so this may be the last we ever see of Poetry Thursdays but, if I don’t get shut down by the Copyright Police, I’m hoping to post a poem every Thursday.  Anyone else want to join me in Poetry Thursdays?

Inaugural Poetry Thursday poem

Give Me a Book

by Myra Cohn Livingston

Give me a book
and long tall grass,
There will I look
as the hours pass.

To other faces,
strange to me

In black and white
they fill my head
With men and women
vanished, dead

Of hope and fear,
of wish and need.
The world stand still.
I, breathless, read,

And in their history
I see
the untold mystery
of me.
