Poetry by Edith Covensky


I was born in an instant

A very small piece of time

Flowing between the words

In a poem not yet written

And in a place which night had not reached.


And this is like a tale that entrances me

(in my term)



Sprinkling on me a little dust from the stars.


There is something childish in me

That leads me lightheaded through the days

Free to squander


And all that preserves me perhaps

Is the inability to die

In the fire dissolved in me

When I seal the poems.

I Embody the Poem

My splintered love yearns for the night

Inspires sorrow

On small paper benches


My death no longer matters.


I embody the poem

Feel it not only in my head

But in my mouth too:

Words have such power.
