Laura (riding) Jackson Poems

  • 1.
    Across a continent imaginary
    Because it cannot be discovered now
    Upon this fully apprehended planet-
    No more applicants considered,
  • 2.
    With the face goes a mirror
    As with the mind a world.
    Likeness tells the doubting eye
    That strangeness is not strange.
  • 3.
    This is not exactly what I mean
    Any more than the sun is the sun.
    But how to mean more closely
    If the sun shines but approximately?
  • 4.
    The secrets of the mind convene splendidly,
    Though the mind is meek.
    To be aware inwardly
    of brain and beauty
  • 5.
    The little quids, the million quids,
    The everywhere, everything, always quids,
    The atoms of the Monoton-
    Each turned three essences where it stood
  • 6.
    Here where the end of bone is no end of song
    And the earth is bedecked with immortality
    In what was poetry
    And now is pride beside
  • 7.
    I do not doubt you.
    I know you love me.
    It is a fact of your indoor face,
    A true fancy of your muscularity.

Some Wretched creature, savior take
 by Emily Dickinson


Some Wretched creature, savior take
Who would exult to die
And leave for thy sweet mercy's sake
Another Hour to me
