The poem that was mentioned in the Oct 2008 Press Enterprise article, and
that won the 2008 National Mensa Publications award, appears below with
permission from the author and from Mensa:
by Edie Schmoll
And Now I have left the wasted midsummer,
that long season of madness—
that was not a true God’s summer
but ever, ever a sadness.
And I have pondered the slow falling time
of a lonely dark season—
in that black creeping foliage
past the balance of reason.
And I have climbed a lofty peak
of misty, fog-shrouded snow—
and crossed a stark grey desert
where burning dead rivers flow.
And Now is Infinity before me
in the soft glow of the sea—
and Now I travel not alone,
as you are beside, beside me.
