Featured Poem: “The Natural Mother” from the book Poems Twice Told the Boatman & Welcoming Disaster

Jay Macpherson (poems twice told) the boatman and welcoming disaster

The Natural Mother

All the soft moon bends over,

All circled in her arm,

All that her blue folds cover,

Sleeps shadowed, safe and warm.

 

Then lullaby King David’s town,

The shepherds in the snow,

Rough instruments, uneasy crown,

And cock about to crow,

 

And lullaby the wakeful bird

That mourns upon the height,

The ancient heads with visions stirred,

The glimmering new light;

 

Long rest to purple and to pall,

The watchers on the towered wall,

The dreamland tree, the waterfall:

Lullaby my God and all.
