Blessing
She lifts the white-handled bowl
out of the cabinet, gathers
from the refrigerator the twelvegrain pancake mix, two
eggs, walnut oil, skimmed milk,
and her tupperware of wheat germ,
oat bran and lecithin,
sees again her father sitting
at the breakfast table, hacking
on his Lucky Strikes, gulping
bacon and three eggs, easy over
more than thirty years ago
as she ignites the griddle,
blends liquid ingredients to dry,
mixes in a benediction -- may all of us
live long and healthy lives -throws in some frozen blueberries,
and with firm resolve spoons
on the batter, waits
fort he bubbles to appear, flips
them until golden, then lays them out
on a large oval platter
buttering lightly while still hot,
then dusting the tops with cinnamon sugar.
Each days he makes this offering
for her husband and son.
May her merit defend them -- Amen.

To the Muse
ITALIAN POEM
Once on lazy autumn afternoons, I heard
you sing under the yellowing willow leaves.
But tonight, I trudge in the icy darkness
among fallen diamonds, road salt glinting
in the murky streetlights. I listen
for the lilting song that rode the wind’s back
on sun-speckled afternoons,
only to hear crushed salt moaning
between black asphalt
and my worn soles.

Kristina Snader ’09 (March 2007)
