Let your soul stand cool and composed

who taught you
that the
value of a woman
is the ratio
of her waist
to her hips
and the circumference
of her buttocks
and the volume
of her lips?
Your math
is
dangerously wrong
her value
is
nothing less
than
infinite.

The Expanding Universe of Poetry

Often I lose myself in such distances and numbers that I fear
I shall never find myself again.
But unexpectedly the opposites fuse in a poem.
From the century’s amorphous nebulae in the Self
a new star was born,
now shining
in convincing unity.
And the expanding universe of poetry
continues to baffle the astrologers.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
