Front Page

On the front page of the newspaper
the beautiful woman wipes her tear
The copy beneath details a decade ago loss.
In Texas a bonfire that killed twelve is a big deal.
I wonder if our understanding of our connectedness will ever grow
To the point where any twelve deaths
Will merit a front page anniversary?
Bill Grace



Phoo On You Robert Browning!

Phoo on you Robert Browning
Not for your poetry but your theology:

'God's in his heaven
All's right with the world.'

No - God is with us
We turn from the mangled corpse on the cross
Our strivings, our struggles, our pride
Keep us from timeless glazed eyes

No - Ronald Reagan would have loved you
My Mother quoted you
God is with us
'Gott mit uns'
On the belt buckles of an army with broken crosses
That would have conquered the world.
Bill Grace




'Arise go forth and conquer.' - Tennyson
The poster said with young duckling pictured and quoting big T
I can still celebrate that spirit though old
But know that for duckling to grow to duck
Wise eyes must guide to keep brother hawk from lunch.
Bill Grace



Rilke's Dictum

These marks of meaning
Must strike to paper as I breathe
When there are no fresh lines here
You know I'm gone
Or the other death has claimed me.
Bill Grace
