Anne Sexton - Noon Walk On The Asylum Lawn

The summer sun ray
shifts through a suspicious tree.
though I walk through the valley of the shadow
It sucks the air
and looks around for me.

The grass speaks.
I hear green chanting all day.
I will fear no evil, fear no evil
The blades extend
and reach my way.

The sky breaks.
It sags and breathes upon my face.
In the presence of mine enemies, mine enemies
The world is full of enemies.
There is no safe place.

This is sad but powerful piece...the world does have safe places...but much depends on the people around you and those who love you and you love in return..

The last sentence in this poem is so true the world has no safe places to hide.
