Donald Justice - On The Death Of Friends In Childhood

We shall not ever meet them bearded in heaven
Nor sunning themselves among the bald of hell;
If anywhere, in the deserted schoolyard at twilight,
forming a ring, perhaps, or joining hands
In games whose very names we have forgotten.
Come memory, let us seek them there in the shadows.

I Saw an Angel :
Today I saw an angel
And birds moving around
At a stand of books and books
And the angel smiles and looks
Somewhere deep into god;
As alone I stood in fire
And held book of desire,
The angelís eyes and lips
And words and wings of heaven
Proved what neednít be proven
And gave the touch of god
