With this stone, I am no melancholy woman:
in consideration of death
in the gray morning
or groaning at the sunlight
slipping between the rock.
I am a voice emerging
from the borders of winter;
a victor in the parting of the red sea
a root thrived
in the smallest part of earth
whispering: here I am here I am here I am
