Ah, "where is the penny world I bought / To eat with Pipit behind the screen?"CRNancy et al,I hope that you enjoy this poem based upon Eliot's poem based upon the sermon delivered on Christmas Day 1622; and honoring Valerie Eliot.Happy Holidays to all on this list!Eugene SchlangerA Poet’s Wife(for Valerie Eliot 1926-2012)Valerie Eliot has just died.It is said that when she first heardJohn Gielgud recite the Journey of the MagiShe instinctively knewWhat she wanted to doAnd what to do.Imagine if in our self-important worldYou were told that someoneFell in love with life’s purposeUpon hearing a poem; odder still,A poem that recounts an arduous journeyTowards an unlikely birth centuries ago.Odd? Uncommon? OrIn the England between the warsWas there still some lingering presenceOf that past in the present beforeThe dismal future that alwaysPortends another end?Perhaps the Magi saw all that and more—In the caravan, in the small town,Among those playing dice andAmong those wanting women—And now, centuries later,As winter sets upon us again,I see and hear once more,Melancholic yet magnanimous,Among carpenters and plumbers,Christians and Jews, in Brooklyn,The borough of churches,That same desire for direction.
