This Week’s Reflection

For your own practice and discussion.

The Wonder of It
by Harriet Monrore 1914

How wild, how witch-like weird that life should be!
That insensate rock dared dream of me,
And take to bursting out and burgeoning -
Oh long ago – yo ho! -
And wearing green! How stark and strange a thing
That life should be!

Oh mystic mad, a rigadoon of glee,
That dust should rise and lead alive, and flee
A-foot, a-wing, and shake the deeps with cries -
Of far away – yo-hay!
What moony masque, what arrogant disguise
That life should be!
