Gregory Orr – Ⅲ

Part Three  (A Selection) 



All the different books you read—

You were searching

For one book.


All the poems you read

And what you really sought

Was the one poem.


And when you found it

Weren’t you lifted up?

Didn’t you become lighter?


Transparent even, so that

Someone looking at you

Could see the world,

Could see the world inside you?
