Dear Ones,

Here is an early poem …

KITTEN DAWNING
a poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

What ligature compounds this melody?

Awake! The day has just begun!
The animal has wreathed herself beneath my arm
fending the light.

Awake! The shuttered windows perpetrate the sun!

She swarmed into the air, danced there, reneged
grooved deep beneath the sheet
and humpered breathlessly
in the warm, golden darkness.

. . . . .
