South Fork Poetry: ‘Moderate Rupture’

Wed, 07/13/2022 - 17:34

Skies are falling;
Oceans rising:
News surprising
And appalling.

Always changing,
Ill directed,
Near deranging.  

But despair not,
There is constance
And remonstrance               
Saying “Care not.”

Every bad is
Kept in cages
By the pages
Where the ad is.        

Bernard Goldhirsch, poet and former English teacher, lives in Springs.
