Waking


Cardinal song
 

starting cars
 

ticking clock;
 

breathing
 

heart beating
 

closed eyes.
 

—Dark windows;
 

the new moon. 

 

Snowflakes, warm chimneys, quiet earth . . . 

 

            Cardinal flight
 

moving cars
 

            tick, tick, tick;
 

sighing
 

            arms wide
 

open eyes.
 

—Dim windows;
 

the slow sun.
 





(From the book Collected Poems)
