|Music: Wer nur den lieben Gott laesst walten.(BWV 691)
By J.S. Bach. Sequenced by Margareth Greentree at Kunst der Fuge.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Forty-two has friends and a young daughter.
Open up her life and you will find,
Resting at the unprotected center,
The quiet self-assurance of her mind,
Yielding nothing as the years unwind.
There is no future that can be designed.
