Who Taught You?

A POEM

By Lorraine Bochler Eshleman | March 1986

Butterfly, who taught you

Your exotic dance?

Who made your wings melodious?
What makes your spirit chance

That life is meant for sailing,

That days are light and free?

Do you have a “nest egg”
Or only liberty?

Old Cathedral

This granite faith was pressed against the sky

And, wonder, stood alone;

The truth of…

Failed Species?

For twenty million years or more

This planet fed the Dinosaur.

It makes you sit…

Compassion

Ice in the spirit

Is but frozen tears

And bitterness

Is expectation killed.
