The Man of Double Deed

There was a man of double deed, Who sowed his garden full of seed; When the seed began to grow, 'Twas like a garden full of snow; When the snow began to melt, 'Twas like a ship without a belt; When the ship began to sail, 'Twas like a bird without...

A Heavy Apple

A heavy apple draws a full branch down with summer, so it will know where to fall, an open hand grows up from the ground. Like so, my soul, you bow ever lower, dumber, loaded heavy with juice and time and fermenting beams of light. You are also a...

I’m Thankful That We’re Both Alive at the Same Time…

I’m thankful that we’re both alive at the same time, for if the chasm of an instant were to separate us, a moan would divide both joy and hope with a knife and both hearts would not beat in my lines. I’m thankful that we’re both alive on the same...

And This Is the Ballad of My Life

And this is the ballad of my life: dipping bread in salt at a banquet for my unseen guests from afar. And when they are hailed on by clod of earth after clod of earth, to meet them between long tree-lined streets once more. And this is the ballad...

Butterfly

What lovely aftermath is painted in your dust. You were led through the flaming core of the earth, through its stony shell, webs of farewell in the transient measure. Butterfly blessed night of all beings! The weights of life and death sink down ...

עוד חוזר הניגון

עוד חוזר הניגון שזנחת לשווא והדרך עודנה נפקחת לאורך וענן בשמיו ואילן בגשמיו מצפים עוד לך, עובר אורח והרוח תקום ובטיסת נדנדות יעברו הברקים מעליך וכבשה ואיילת תהיינה עדות שליטפת אותן והוספת ללכת שידיך ריקות ועירך רחוקה ולא פעם סגדת אפיים ...

אי אפשר, או: לו הייתי אי ירוק בים

האי הצף, האי הבודד בלי תמונות כאלו ..לא הייתי שורד... כמה פסטורלי ורגוע להתבונן באיים ייחודיים שהאדם מתכנן. כמה מאמץ השקעה (ואיזה עלות!) אך לבנות אי צף, בים? נשמע כמו שטות! יש כל כך הרבה מקום בעולם ואנשים שצפים בייאוש מושלם אנשים בודדי...

In My Craft Or Sullen Art

In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed With all their griefs in their arms, I labour by singing light Not for ambition or bread Or the strut and trade of charms On the ivory stages B...

In the Absence of Sparrows

Rockets concuss. Guns rattle off.
Dogs in a public square
feed on dead horses.

I don’t know, Jim, where you are.
When did you last see
birds? The winter sky in Boston

is gray with flu. Newspapers,
senators, fr...

Awake

Calm as that moonbeam on the wall, Sleep broods on baby's eyes; Arms, hush'd and still, but pulsing quick, Enfold him as he lies; My brain is full of thronging thoughts, Strange passions thrill my breast, My heart aches with a load of love That wi...

Fashion

See those resplendent creatures, as they glide O'er scarlet carpet, between footmen tall, From sumptuous carriage to effulgent hall - A dazzling vision in their pomp and pride! See that choice supper - needless - cast aside - Though worth a thousa...

Nightingales, A Sigh, A Whisper

Nightingales, a sigh, a whisper In a shady nook And the lullaby in silver Of a lazy brook. Light of night and midnight shadow Falling from above And the changing mood and magic Of a face you love Through dark clouds a red rose peeping And an amb...
