To hold you

A Poem from Rilke( Book of Hours)


She who reconciles the ill- matched threads

of her life and weaves them gratefully

into a single cloth-

its she who drives the loudmouths from the hall

and clears it for a different celebration


where the one guest is you

In the softness of the evening

it’s you she receives.


You are the partner of her loneliness,

and unspeaking center of her monologues.

With each disclosure you encompass more

and she stretches beyond what limits her,

to hold you


sweet heart sweet heart sweet heart

She’s humming your name

humming your name, humming your name


And Thank You Nancy Pelosi

for being our First woman Speaker of The House!!!!
