The wheat slant in the rain makes the Good bread you eat and the Little Mineral six million times a Little Mineral you drink. Let your Gorge Rise on the feast.

A the loss of innocence and the sometimes brutal human spirit is the theme of a poem about four owls shot by police after they swooped and frightened some neighbourhood children in Clifton Heights. Now not Only owls Are dead. Something has died in children. They will always be afraid in after nights when they Are grown and oot of owls in velvet dark will not Wake feeling hands to love. Thev will remember under feathers there is blood their fingers stirring to the gun. There Are Beautiful Lyric love songs which speak of a Long deep abiding love a physical and spiritual with All our senses a eager fingers of the soul a we have loved much.

And in another poem written to her husband Amy says when you Are gone the House sounds hollow music. As a Shell it holds the rhythm of your even Steps for in your coming and your going you make Rich the quiet like a tolling Bell. When you Are gone and when you come again at night the empty House has knowledge of your will its waking pulse beats your return then there is peace and Strong Delight.
