“May This be a House of Joy” by Lucille Clifton #PoetryMonth

It gets to a point I don’t have much intro to say about the poets in my canon. Lucille Clifton was an American poet whom I’ve featured numerous times on this blog.

May This be a House of Joy

May this be a House of Joy.
May we be open here to dreams,
and to each other.

May all who enter in these magic walls
feel love and feel respect
for learning and each other.
May we be always friends to life.
May we walk in that friendship.

May learning live in this house.
May it never leave.
