Yanked this from [livejournal.com profile] hobbitblue.

When you see this post, post a poem to your LJ. She chose one of my favorites (Elizabeth Bishop's "One Art," a gorgeous villanelle), but here's another I quite like. YMMV.

"A Map of Love"
Donald Justice

Your face more than others' faces
Maps the half-remembered places
I have come to while I slept—
Continents a dream had kept
Secret from all waking folk
Till to your face I awoke,
And remembered then the shore,
And the dark interior.

"Men at Forty" (another favorite poem)
