[ From Her Poems for Azimuth
after Hearing Clare Hanssonís Jazz Composition
Breathe Through Ivory (from Azimuth) ] 
ó Bet Briggs


Heard late in solitude
in the cathedral of night
a serene concord:
on ivory an elegy of bells,
from strings long drawn by the bow:
warm, vibrant tones,
deep as the dark:
this gentle nocturne falls
like a benediction
on my aching heart.
