“Deliverance” … a poem by Alice ..

Dear Ones,

People ask me what this poem is about… Really, it’s about the interpretation you bring to it, not the interpretation I give it. See what you think…

DELIVERANCE
by Alice B. Clagett

On a grey day by a grey sea
As the tide flees this steady shore,

Two children —
altogether mindless of Monday
and the grim anguish of their parents,
Greet white-capped waves with ecstasy

And far away, a three-sailed bark,
Poised on the edge of sky and sea
Slips silent into mystery.

Who stands before the mast?
Is it the shadow of the man?
Or does this brim-full heart,
holding his hand,
Chart a sure course by some forgotten star
To bring him home again?

–a gift from Alice, June 2003

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
