Diary of the Plague Year: Day 54 8 May 2020: Quotidian Poetry: Elizabeth Jennings (1926-2001)

RAGE OF THE MOON
 
Rest, heavy head, on the wood
        Of the good, old desk-stand.
Dreams must be understood
        And the right hand
 
Feels for purchase upon
        A fine, old, open page
Of writing lit by the moon
       And its light rage.
