Dear Ones,

Here is an early poem …

ALL-WHERE AIR BINDS AND LOOSENS
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

Few of us found it
less knew he had it
enjoined unbidden and fled equally unwilled.

Of a steel-bright morn-end
scarecrow wavered in the corn field, watching

Blue sun sliced straw fingers
painted eyes kissed pained air
one shoe moulded a wet home for field mice.

Then the fervid disc in soft alleviation lowered :
Greenness. More corn, more crow grown bold.
Two shoes, the field mouse
straw hand comforting

All-where air binds and loosens.
Few find
less cognizant
none refusing dispersal.

. . . . .
