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

Ann M. DeVenezia


His Call

When they ask where she went to school
tell them she sat at the feet of the Dean
counting window panes in their frames

Tell them she was deaf to all voices
except what He said in her ear
an ocean crashing on the shore

He whispered in peace
shouted during war
his message always clear.
