1 Poem by Wendy Howe

Raven In The Field

Take this patch of meadow
clustered green in clover
and you have a textile
by William Morris.  Hidden in its foliage,
the assumption that love is enough --

the love of  being wild and open,
of flight from anyone or thing
that confines your freedom. And yet

is such love enough
as you turn on the edge of evening,
your hair and shawl falling
into a feathery shadow.
