Virgin of the Apocalypse

Corrine De Winter

Poetry by Corrine De Winter, an accomplished poet. Note from the illustrator, Marge Simon: “De Winter’s masterful verse awakens awe with every stroke. It was sheer pleasure to illustrate this marvelous collection. May you wander freely through the treasures herein, and come away in wonderment reading lines like these:”

“I have only these hands
of pale comfort,
of wilderness and discretion,
of atom bombs and struggle,
of ecstasy and clay
to save you.”
