Contributor Series 3: Resolution and Resolve
The Navigators
By Joseph Murphy

The buoy rang steadily
As I walked the glade and redwood grove,
That free day of mine.

I paused in a meadow, eyes closed.

Bell in my heart,
Be heard as clearly:
Guide me
And those I love.


Joseph Murphy’s poem The Long Night appeared at vox poetica in December 2009.
