Summary
  • Kaleidoscope is the first in a series of ten volumes to be published over the next ten years as a complement to an online hypermedia edition of the Collected Works of P. K. Page. Listed chronologically by date of composition, the poetry in Kaleidoscope is fluid, wondrous and technically exquisite, drawing on subjects great and small, and it offers a comprehensive look at one of Canada's most beloved and brilliant poets
  • Seraphim In the dream it was the seraphim who camegolden, six-wingedwith eyes of aquamarineand set my hair aflameand spoke in a language which written down -- an elegant script of candelabras and chalices -- spelled out my name but it was not my name The mornings following were bright as wingssky's intricate cirrusthe feathers under his wingsthe wind's great rushthe bladed beat of his wings Mare's tails traced the passage of his seraphic chariot Hummingbirds ruby-throated roared and brakedin the timeless isinglass air and burned like coalshigh in the fronds of a brass palm sunbirds sanggirasoles swung their cadmium-coloured hairand I heard the seraphim telling once againthe letters of my name but my name was lost in the spoken syllables by Summer, 1976 1997
