SANDY STAR: 1. SCULPTURED WORSHIP, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The zones of warmth around his heart
Last Line: His very heart will break.
Subject(s): Sacrifices


THE zones of warmth around his heart,
No alien airs had crossed;
But he awoke one morn to feel
The magic numbness of autumnal frost.

His thoughts were a loose skein of threads,
And tangled emotions, vague and dim;
And sacrificing what he loved
He lost the dearest part of him.

In sculptured worship now he lives,
His one desire a prisoned ache;
If he can never melt again
His very heart will break.
