This land give us all that makes life worth living: September's rustling end, a woman leaving forty behind with her apricots, an hour of sunlight in prison, clouds reflecting swarms of insects, a people's applause for those who laugh at their erasure, and the tyrant's fear of songs.

My Lady, because you are my Lady, I deserve life. Share this poem:.
