For You

God knows what poetry is true
Among the pressing and the new,
God knows what poetry will last
Or how the stones of joy are cast.
The common thread, the common tongue
Binds all of us in speech and song:
Then if the casting of a spell
Sounds from these pages like a bell
Within your spirit, you have found
A space of hope on common ground.

Dedicatory verses for The Spaces of Hope
224 pages
