"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


David Lemire was born in north-central Missouri but lived most of his life in Southern California. In 2005 he and his family moved to New Zealand, where he teaches English, writes poetry, and has recently adapted Shakespeare's King Lear to the Māori Musket Wars period.

(double haiku)

Four Elements
Seem timeless and still;
But reflections of Mount Cook prove –
In Air and Water like fired glass –
That, as with Mirrors,
All move, and move.
