"I will make this world of my devising" - Sara Teasdale

The author photographed at the top of Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland in July of 2022

I want to live inside a poem

a simple place to call my home

when the city is too bright

and all I want to do

is sleep

-

surroundings that I recognize

though their features be disguised

through handpicked words

and phrases turned so sweet

-

in this world I am the one

who, though imperfect

holds the sun

and whispers stories to the moon

complete

-

as the ruler of this realm

I'm free to sing

dance through the elm

or to close my eyes

feel the sun rise

and be

-

I want to live inside this poem

the world can wait, for this I own

a haven deep and endless

as the sea
