Wild Lily Quote

       from poet and author

       Emily Isaacson

O true Hero,
O speaker of the play upon the stage,
O personhood we follow in renaissance,
O woman for whom we cast our vote,

O only playwright
Who wrote of protagonist before time began,
(quill, ink, papyrus)

O landscape spanning thro the valley wide,
O heaven open to our wounded pride,
Mission of art!

O Seismic afternote from infidel,
O Music to the finest ear in perfect pitch,
O Ebony and ivory upon the keyboard of soliloquy,
O Word and verse that stands in rhyming couplet,
O Sonnet of resurrection from the past,
Great orator!

Emily Isaacson, "Hero Contemplation," Hallmark
