"The act of poetry is a rebel act."

Poem of the Week — “Introductions” by Moya Cannon

Introductions

Some of what we love
we stumble upon–
a purse of gold thrown on the road,
a poem, a friend, a great song.

And more
discloses itself to us–
a well among green hazels,
a nut thicket–
when we are worn out searching
for something quite different.

And more
comes to us, carried
as carefully
as a bright cup of water,
as new bread.

-Moya Cannon, from The Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry Volume Two
