Shelter
by Toni Morrison


In this soft place
Under your wings
I will find shelter
From ordinary things.


Here are the mountains
I want to scale
Amazon rivers
I'm dying to sail.


Here the eyes of the forest
I can hold in a stare
And smile the movement
Of Medusa's green hair.


In this soft place
Under your wings
I will find shelter
From ordinary things.
