Where does the fault lie? I yearn upward, touch you close, Then stand away. XI Already how am I so far Out of that minute? Must I go Still like the thistle-ball, no bar, Onward, whenever light winds blow, Fixed by no friendly star? XII Just when I seemed about to learn! Where is the thread now? Off again! The old trick! Only I discern— Infinite passion, and the pain Of finite hearts that yearn. My Star All, that I know Of a certain star Is, it can throw Like the angled spar Now a dart of red, Now a dart of blue; Till my friends have said They would fain see, too, My star that dartles the red and the blue!
Then it stops like a bird; like a flower, hangs furled: They must solace themselves with the Saturn above it. What matter to me if their star is a world? Mine has opened its soul to me; therefore I love it. Academy of American Poets Educator Newsletter.

Having vowed to stay in Algeria after his parents had left, he found himself forced, by escalating violence against the French, to follow them to France. And having vowed not to buckle to his father's indomitable will, he found himself forced to depend on his family's largess after Sagesse's brother, Etienne, was born brain-damaged and physically impaired.
For her parents, Sagesse observes, Etienne's birth signaled "the clanging of their prison door," trapping both of them in an arduous marriage of betrayal and resentment. Though Alexandre would insist on "a fiction of love at first sight," theirs was a mismatch from the start. Carol, Sagesse's American-born mother, tried her best to reinvent herself as a Frenchwoman, but she could never win the acceptance of her husband's imperious parents, and her discovery of Alexandre's many affairs would lead to a further chilling of the marriage.
Also Today in Books. The young Sagesse takes her mother's side, denouncing her father as a cold, selfish man whose "malignant presence" was "unconvincingly masked by his cheerful smiles and premeditated caresses. Tensions between Alexandre and Carol escalate in the wake of an impetuous, coldblooded act by Jacques, who, angered by the sound of children splashing in the hotel pool, fires a gun in their direction, wounding one of Sagesse's friends. The incident creates one of those fault lines after which nothing is ever the same: It isolates the LaBasse family from the community and precipitates the disclosure of ancient family secrets.
The incident and its aftermath also cut Sagesse off from her friends and her former life. Free download. Book file PDF easily for everyone and every device.
