‘DELAY’ — A POEM BY ELIZABETH JENNINGS !

”Delay”

The radiance of the star that
leans on me
Was shining years ago. The light
that now
Glitters up there my eyes may
never see,
And so the time lag teases me
with how
Love that loves now may not
reach me until
Its first desire is spent. The star’s
impulse
Must wait for eyes to claim it
beautiful
And love arrived may find us
somewhere else.
