Lyra Ruth

“Spite will make a woman
do more than love.”

– Margaret of Navarre (1492 -1549)

“Twelve armed men cannot control
the strife created by one elegant woman.”

– Chinese saying

LYRA RUTH
(for Miss Lyra Ruth P.,
torch-bearer at port’s academy)

a lyre afire
your strings ablaze
as hot springs a-glaze

in sulfuric fury.

your tune:
classic, though volcanic

your fume:
lyrical, though ruthless!

– March 2001

– between
learning and loving
is a teacher.

– between
your plume and your fume
is your tune.
