Join us on February 25 at 7 p.m. for the next poetry discussion on the chosen poem New Year’s Day by Ursula K. LeGuin. Read it slowly, ponder it, reflect on it, let it speak to you, even pray it. Then join us on a February evening in the church library.

New Year’s Day

An eagle anger with a broken wingstruggles inside my body and strikes blindto break the iron bars with iron beak.Far too late now for cure or soft healing.To such deep injury no hand is kind.Within me is the way the bird must take,in this cage all the sky she can attain,the wide, clear, patient silence of the mindwhere flight goes far and fierce thought can forsake words and seek distances out past all pain,ache, and heartache.

—Ursula K. LeGuin
