Baby Heart Song
Rosemary Starace

The arms of the frightening world
will wrap me, and I will live there,
bouncing on the world's knee,
buoyant on her lap waves--a sailor baby,
hands outreaching from a good ship's prow.

Oh leaning woman,
      of the low breast,
      of the salt arms,
carry a baby heart, a baby heart,
carry it across the sea.

Next Poem: Gypsy
