B.Z. Niditch- A Poem


Reading Virginia Woolf
to teach to freshmen
at the only light house
around the Cape
with the morning TV guy
saying another wind storm
followed by floods
was imminent,
a guy holding bass
and salmon on his arm
with Gide on the other
reads to us in French
telling about his cruise
as a weather prognosticator 
in startling climate changed
about Siberian exiled writers
women poets from China's
different dynasties,
we invite him to class
and have a great repast.
