Christmas (from Harriet)Edit

Posted by Harriet on December 23rd, 2006 in the Robert Jordan's Blog category

Dear Jason, something to post, to celebrate the season — and Jim’s WONDERFUL news. Love to you all, Harriet

A Genuine Wham-O
Lists for cards, lists for cookies,
lists for books and scarves and games
and candles. Maybe
a bell would fit in there.
Maybe I’ll give it up and be a witch.
My ersatz Frisbees –
cards and scarves –
are packed with love,
but never seem to hit the mark,
the tender lips, the gleaming fangs
of those I throw them to.
I’ll borrow a young terrier bitch
and lob a real one for her.
Frisbees of love? We live in one:
the Milky Way. Or are you going
to fob me off with dusty physics,
lumps of coal and willow switches?
Please! The world sends me huge bright disks
of love and light.
Although it’s hard to see them, hidden as they are
in books and scarves and games
and candles. And a bell.

– Harriet Popham Rigney
