Gwynne Garfinkle

Dorothy's Prayer

                      cyclone spiral like a snail shell
whirl me safe within my house
                 encircle me, spin sepia into Technicolor
                    hold me up, daughter of the gale
  send me to the edge of the
                  known world and far beyond
    cyclone spiral like a snail shell
