by Grace Paley

Life is as risky
as it is branchy

treetop and twigtip
are only the beginning

then comes the westwind to lean
and the northwind to turn

then the sunshine implores
and up all of us go

we are like any
greengrowing machinery

riding the daylight route
to darkness

  1. Grace Paley always gives voice to a good story that harbors
    emblematic concerns that makes human endeavors approachable
    even when nature’s reasons need a poignant exploration.
