Poetry Friday: The Coming of Light


The Coming of Light

by Mark Strand

Even this late it happens:

the coming of love, the coming of light.

You wake and the candles are lit as if by themselves,

stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows,

sending up warm bouquets of air.

  1. Mark Strand is a favorite poet of mine. I’m sorry that he is lately passed. I love this one, Catherine, “dreams pour into your pillows”. Thank you for sharing, and I’m wishing a beautiful holiday for you and your family.
