Personal and curriculum poetry

  1. 1. PERSONAL AND CURRICULUM POETRY Introduction to Literature- English 122 Erika L. LaMarch Professor Duffy
  2. 2. Scientia Floret Virtute The view out the loft glass is illuminated by the vivacious glow from wet- nosed carolers that gesturally interrupt me from my timely toil Like trails cast by stage light beams snatching opera glasses out of focus. Would I ever sing with them! was I free from busying study… Should life become a Flemish painting wherein snowflakes stop before they fall? Could there be detachment from my troubles by use of swooping lines and festive colors? But, I am the seed within the apricot, the only part capable of growth, and they only the surface skin that darkens, sinks, and is forgotten. Restless to the combustion of my atoms for shame of stillness turns me from my box seat to the next page of this woman’s journey. 2006
