Within this life there burns a rose
This rose burns sweetly
Giving flame the name of joy.
Against a darkened sky
This rose burns sweetly.
This heart is gold without alloy.
This heart conceals a burning rose.
How sweetly does this golden heart
Impart its burning joy.

A Poem for Angela
In going on and on about our business
We choose the things that make us wholly us.
String and steel and love and hard-edged diamonds,
Chocolate, ink and bits of marble dust.
With these and more we build ourselves a person,
A boundless, endless, magic piece of art.
We make it with the things we lay our hands on.
We build us with the things we take to heart. . .
