Invitation Engraved on Sunlight

Eclipse (1966)

Helen Sorrells

While this fresh fall of light,
This summery burn,
Heats our travelling blood,
And the wheel turns

Upward in the hills
Of your forgiveness,
Come to my country.
I make two promises:

Here prophets are given
The keys to their cities;
All the statues are
Living.
