There! against the sky
Just at the hill-top
Is the end of the world!
Approach it slowly
On this smooth wide road—
Who knows what is on the other side?
Startling it is how the road
Leads to the hill-top
And ends so boldly, clear, against
        the sky.

Alma Flagg’s enduring belief in Newark and its citizens marked the course of her life as an educator, civic leader and poet. Dr. Flagg concluded her journey on March 10, 2018. She was 99.

“View” was published in her 1981 collection Twenty more with thought and feeling.
