I Give Smiles
By Marion Strobel
 
From “That Year”

YOU are the reaching out in me,
The supplication of my folded hands.
You are the breaking radiance of my hope—
My high desire.
 
I will give you a gay futility of smiles,        5
For I cannot fill the vastnesses
With which you stretch my life
To emptiness.
