Words of My Week

Natural Law

If you press a stone with your finger

Sir Isaac Newton observed,

the finger is also

pressed by the stone

But a woman, pressed by memory’s finger,

in the deep night, alone,

of her softness move

The airy thing

That presses upon her

with the whole weight of love? This

Sir Isaac said nothing of.
