Marvin Silbersher: My Life in Poetry - banner

a gift of trees
and animals

like runners
upward or downward

even if the cities
drown in flood,

once a man
is born

he must live
his life

a huge bag on
his back

out of childhood

in a long


the edge
of a wooden bridge,

a shy creature of
fresh water

piercing the screen
of heaven
