Poetry Friday: The Light of September

September 25th, 2009

This week’s selection is from our editor Bill Varner.

“September is a wonderful month I believe. Harvests, football, good sleeping weather, and my son’s birthday. As for Merwin, he needs no introduction.”

To the Light of September

by W. S. Merwin

When you are already here
You appear to be only
a name that tells of you
whether you are present or not
