POEMS FOR THE WEEK
In the Mountains on a Summer Day
Li Po - 700-761
Gently I stir a white feather fan,
With open shirt sitting in a green wood.
I take off my cap and hang it on a jutting stone;
A wind from the pine-trees trickles on my bare head.
We cannot stand these shadows!
Give us the sun.
We were not made
For heavy shade,
And narrow space of stifling air
That these white things have made.
We must break through these shadows,
We must find the sun.
PLUS A SELECTION from SPLIT ROCK BOOKS
For Outside IN, we are reading Wildwood, Pablo & Birdy, Zoe in Wonderland and Pilu of the Woods. Readers are invited to read at their own pace
