North American Dreaming: Hush

William Burkholder's poem is a reassurance that wings can be shared, that the afflicted can still soar.

In the framed corners of my memory,
Angel wings and serenity,
She comes.

The tears of the world
cast upon her vestments
clipped wings
and she flies no more

Asking with sad and sullen eyes
What now,
That my conveyance gone,
Will I do?

And I say,
"Come to me,
I'll take you under wing,
Together we will soar amongst star swept memories,
And moonlit beginnings,

Aye, under wing and wind,
We will fly
No more tears now,
Hush, hush, hush..."
