“The Names”

Yesterday, I lay awake in the palm of the night.

A soft rain stole in, unhelped by any breeze,

And when I saw the silver glaze on the windows,

I started with A, with Ackerman, as it happened,

Then Baxter and Calabro,

Davis and Eberling, names falling into place

As droplets fell through the dark.

Names printed on the ceiling of the night.

Names slipping around a watery bend.

Twenty-six willows on the banks of a stream.

In the morning, I walked out barefoot

Among thousands of flowers

Heavy with dew like the eyes of tears,

And each had a name —

Fiori inscribed on a yellow petal

Then Gonzalez and Han, Ishikawa and Jenkins.

Names written in the air

And stitched into the cloth of the day.

A name under a photograph taped to a mailbox.

Monogram on a torn shirt,

I see you spelled out on storefront windows

And on the bright unfurled awnings of this city.

I say the syllables as I turn a corner —

Kelly and Lee,

Medina, Nardella, and O’Connor.

When I peer into the woods,

I see a thick tangle where letters are hidden

As in a puzzle concocted for children.

Parker and Quigley in the twigs of an ash,

Rizzo, Schubert, Torres, and Upton,

Secrets in the boughs of an ancient maple.

Names written in the pale sky.

Names rising in the updraft amid buildings.

Names silent in stone

Or cried out behind a door.

Names blown over the earth and out to sea.

In the evening — weakening light, the last swallows.

A boy on a lake lifts his oars.

A woman by a window puts a match to a candle,

And the names are outlined on the rose clouds —

Vanacore and Wallace,

(let X stand, if it can, for the ones unfound)

Then Young and Ziminsky, the final jolt of Z.

Names etched on the head of a pin.

One name spanning a bridge, another undergoing a tunnel.

A blue name needled into the skin.

Names of citizens, workers, mothers and fathers,

The bright-eyed daughter, the quick son.

Alphabet of names in a green field.

Names in the small tracks of birds.

Names lifted from a hat

Or balanced on the tip of the tongue.

Names wheeled into the dim warehouse of memory.

So many names, there is barely room on the walls of the heart.

-Billy Collins, Poet Laureate of the United States '01-'03

Here's your WMOI/WRAM/WAIK Athletes of the Week for the week ending Sept. 19th:

Your West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is senior volleyball player, Tori Olson. Tori led the her team in assists in all three matches last week. She averaged over 15 helpers in each contest, with a high of 31 in a loss to Ridgewood.

Your Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is senior volleyball player, Kaylee Woodard. Kaylee was oustanding at the net and at the serving line for her team last week. She smashed 11 kills against Macomb and then scored 21 points in 3-set victory over Ridgewood.

Your United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is junior girls golfer, Erin Glisan. Erin helped lead the Red Storm to two wins last week, including the lowest team score in United girls golf history. In the two meets, she carded a pair of 48's.

Your Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is senior soccer player, Ezechiel Biamungu. Zeke put three goals in the back of the net for a hat trick in a recent 5-0 win over Kewanee. He has been a steady scorer all season long for the Silver Streaks.

Your A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is senior cross country runner, Andrew Powell. Andrew seems to run his best when the competition is the toughest. He finished in 39th place out of 103 runners at the Dunlap Invitational. He was 139th out of 590 runners at the Peoria First to the Finish Meet earlier this season.

Congrats to all of these student-athletes!! Thanks to our AOTW sponsors, MC Sport and More...... McDonough Telephone Cooperative (mdtc) ...... Tompkins State Bank and Yemm Chevrolet Buick GMC Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram!!

Your Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is junior cross country runner, Kaitlyn Pendergast. Kaitlyn had a great showing in a loaded field at the First to the Finish meet in Peoria. She placed 31st out of a large total of 479 2A runners.

Your United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is senior volleyball player, Vada Gregory. Vada was selected to the Carl Sandburg College Tournament All-Tournament team. Her total of 46 kills in the five matchs was one of the big reasons that the Red Storm were able to claim the championship.

Your Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is senior football player, Matthew Burris. Matthew ran the ball 26 times for 244 yards in a Three Rivers Conference win over Erie-Prophetstown. Included in that yardage was an electrifying 93 yard touchdown run that essentially put the game away for the Titans.

Your A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is freshman cross country runner, Natalie Kern. Natalie has a number of nice finishes in her first season of high school cross country, highlighted by her recent performance at the Peoria First to the Finish Race. She placed 91st out of 461 runners.

Your West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is junior volleyball player, Corinne Booton. Corinne totaled 39 kills in the Heat's five matches at the Carl Sandburg College Tournament. She also hustled her way to 49 digs as well. That performance got her named to the All-Tournament team.

Congrats to all of these student-athletes!! Thanks to our AOTW sponsors, MC Sport and More...... McDonough Telephone Cooperative (mdtc) ...... Tompkins State Bank and Yemm Chevrolet Buick GMC Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram!!
