“We prayed to see the racing clouds at bay / Rumpled like sheets after a night of joy, / To stand quite still and let the deluged day / Of rain's releasing, surge up and destroy.”
“If I must go, let it be easy, slow / The curve complete, and a sure swerve / To the goal.”
“Green hills be walls / Forever shaping us.”
Dorothy Livesay, Canadian poet`
(1909 - 1996)
Full name: Dorothy Kathleen May Livesay.
