the hour sealed

Pond Song 4.64

“… [T]o act in oblivion of the gift given would be to rescind the creation as other.” G&B 257

the sky lead the hour sealed__snow glare everywhere

pond and trail no difference__no wind just this air

only the black cry of the crows__three notes a dropped beat

silence on the dim white path__a crow with snow on its beak

  1. And was there really snow on its beak! Don’t answer Tom, it’s not so much a question as an exclamation. That’s a resounding conclusion to a poem that is infused with stillness and wonder.
