Favorite Quote:
I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,


I hear it in the deep heart's core.


She pressed her nose against the walls of the glass house.
behaving boldly as only a child would.
Dazing far off into the distance,
seeing past pretense as only a child could.
Too quick to join the resistance,
ignorant of consequence as only infants were.
Of her own omniscience was she sure,
and then she grew.
her days in the glass house were through.

The poet shows a subtle sensitivity while portraying up the growth of an individual, not just a child. Love the poem.
