Poetry Friday: Under the Light by Laura Whitcomb

Below this leaf there lies its brother
Beneath this root one finds another
And so the layers of time press down
Make mud of us all as down we seep.
But do no read your graveyard stone;
You are more than blood and bone.
Up your soul like a fairy flies
And paints its Heaven on the skies.
- Laura Whitcomb

In the novel Under the Light by Laura Whitcomb, this poem is presented as a piece written by a character. Highlight the rest of this line to discover the identity of the character: (Helen's first host.)
