Joy LeBaron - Founding Editor - Vietnam War Poetry -   Joy LeBaron
   Founding Editor

  I live in a small cottage
  in a small village in
  the mountains of California.
  I have a small life with three
  dogs, a few friends, a quilting group,
  a garden, and the wild birds.

      Across the ocean to a golden Spanish cathedral
      with saints' pictures on the wall; stacked one above the other
      inside ornate gothic frames a kinsman came and
      in a ritual almost as old as Christ
      lit a candle for my soul.
