Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SWANSEA, Mass. - Sep 18, 2018 - Marion H. Flanigan, a Columbia University-educated poet, newspaper reporter, homemaker, and married mother of three, has completed her new book “The Pale Cast of Thought”: a radiant, posthumous collection of epiphanies.
Marion shares from her book,
“My God have pity on this thing you made
To struggle with itself, to wage hard war
Deep in the narrow passes of its veins
And dark embattled caverns of its skull;
Blood fighting brain, will fighting intellect,
—The soul exhausted and the body torn
Between desire and denial, between
Sleep and the sleepless task, between the flesh
Sheathing the ribs, and hunger in the heart.
I am a traitor to myself; my soul
Is a lone country, bleeding itself white
In civil war: so split, I scarcely know
Which half of me is friend, which half my foe;
When I must make allies and choose between
The lean gray knight who grapples with the gloom
For perilous foothold, or the courier
With scarlet plume, and golden spur, who leans
From studded saddle, bidding me to halls
Aflame with torches of a thousand sins.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Marion H. Flanigan’s new book is an eloquent and visionary tome from the heart and mind of one of life’s more astute observers.
Fresh, thought-provoking, and touching, the late poet’s poems are now collected to lend some of their light to those who look for meaning in the words experience produces.
Readers can purchase “The Pale Cast of Thought” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
