“In the deep valleys, and deeper still, / I found my heights ... against my will.”
“Summer is burning! From trees' red crowns / Ashes of June pour hotly down.”
“You gave me wings to fly; / Then took away the sky.”
“Let not my death be long, / But light / As a bird's swinging; / Happy decision in the height / Of song — / Then flight / From off the ultimate bough! / And let my wing be strong, / And my last note the first / Of another's singing. / See to it, Thou!”
Leonora Speyer, U.S. poet, violinist
