THE GEM 18 OCTOBER 2017 : Anne Sexton : the ditch where I left you once, like an old root that wouldn’t take hold, that ditch where I left you while I sailed off in madness over the buildings and under my umbrella . 

MY UMBRELLA

September 20,1983

In the midst of falling rain,

I find I’m not falling.

Cats and dogs don’t hound me.

Rain clouds roll by.

Storm clouds piled high.

My umbrella, keeps the falling rain from drowning me.

Albert Ralph
