Sonnet XIII Roxy in "Amour Americaine."

I am part of all the stars and heavens,
And like the Eagle, I am pure as light.
My sad heart is broken into sevens
One for every Ocean, blue and white.
Amusing now that Death is my dear friend.
Never far…waiting to fulfill his task.
I am joyful to see the journey’s end.
And drop away this sinful being’s mask.
I’ve seen too much of hunger and of want
Folks with no blanket sleeping on the ground
Desperate as animals on the hunt.
Praying that Jesus’s mercy is found.
Yet, I’m happy living among these fools.
Who are, in Heaven’s eyes, the precious jewels.
