Selection 1 of


an utterance of praise for the human spirit
by Mary Lambert
Dear Heart,
Do you not know the sum
of the parts that bind you
to me?

Lift your shining head
and turn to face
the gale that betides

In all your glory,
breathe deeply and hold
the gold of your cloak
about you,

understanding the path
of your being and the
of what has made thee

Never doubt the
chord that sings inside
for it is the song of my lute
and my devaed sphere
come specially to you.

The Great Galaxy calls,
but know this:
thy spirit is a girdle of gold,
thy heart a rare ruby,
thy head a blue diamond
each to each
a mirror
my being.
