From the book of light (1993), "far memory 3" Summary

This poem is simply subtitled "again." This poem looks back on the nun's life before she becomes a nun. She has been born during a war, on a day of "perpetual help." She refers to her birth to a mother who is silent during the birth process, and she feels she has come from a "house/of stillness" before her birth. She lives in a home with a "betraying father" and even is married to a husband, who eventually leaves her to take vows, so she does as well. However, she has had enough of love and passion to wrestle with it as she remembers her "secular days and nights/of another life."
