Poetry Friday: What I Believe
WHAT I BELIEVE
by Michael Blumenthal
I believe there is no justice,
but that cottongrass and bunchberry
grow on the mountain.
I believe that a scorpion's sting
will kill a man,
but that his wife will remarry.
I believe that, the older we get,
the weaker the body,
but the stronger the soul.
The rest is here, including my favorite part:
"I believe in destiny.
And I believe in free will."
Tricia has the round up this week at The Miss Rumphius Effect.
