Undine of St. Agnes School

Undine of St. Agnes School

Don’t look down, Undine, at the waves in the meandering stream.

Look up at the yellow sailboats stranded on the shore-waiting

for the waters to rise.

Look up from the empty tin can in the foreground of grass.

I am reading Edith Wharton’s The Custom of the Country

for you, Mrs. Connell. With love.
