The poet arrived last night
In New York City
To the university

Amidst great fanfare
She introduced a poem
Recalling how

Upon first sight
Of a six-inch Daphne sculpture
In a small museum

Her breathing had changed.

After that startling revelation
All the rest was just words.

  1. Looks like my comment did not take. I love this poem - it's amazing! It inspired me to finish one of my own that is similar. I'm going to look for more of your work. julie
