Dorothy Livesay

  • 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.

    • "The Outrider," Day and Night ()
  • If I must go, let it be easy, slow / The curve complete, and a sure swerve / To the goal.

    • Dorothy Livesay,
    • "Improvisation on an Old Theme," Poems for People ()
  • Green hills be walls / Forever shaping us.
