Eve Sutton My God, the soul you have given me Is pure. As for the others, well You know how it happens: One person speaks, Another listens. Now that we have the printed word This could go on forever. And beyond words We carry the souls of the body: This touch, that pain, The familiar motion of backbone and leg. And the souls of trees as we know them. Landscapes. Buildings. Their tastes and sounds. Still I have not mentioned the soul of true love And its many variations, Some more pure than others. The consummate moment of Soul- happening- now. The disappointment afterward. (continued on next page) Shofar 36.2 (2018): 72–73 The Souls of One Who Has Lived 73 My God, the soul you have given me Is pure. You breathed it into me. You will take it from me when I die, And you will restore it to me In the life to come. As for the others, well You know how a funeral is like a rummage sale. How the pieces are gathered and matched Although some are missing. How the mourners take into their mortal bodies As a gesture, a fragrance, a song. CONTRIBUTOR Eve
