From “Ceremony for Completing a Poetry Reading” by Chrystos (Christina Smith) in When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through, edited by Joy Harjo:
You’ve come gathering
made a circle with me
of the places I’ve wandered
I give you
the first daffodil opening
from earth I’ve sown.
“The tall lilies are brought forward in all their glory … and the nearest of the trees with their whorled branches tower above you like larger lilies, and the sky seen through the garden opening seems one vast meadow of white lily stars.“
Thanks for taking a look! and Happy Easter!
