A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
Young men stamping; clouds of dust their feet
Stir up; the gleaming weapons and the heat –

as the squadron marches out of town
Our newborn granddaughter is named Camilla
from Aeneid VII’s warrior maiden,
the speedy runner, skimming over wheat,
scouring the ocean, keeping her feet dry.
