As a globed fruit,

Dumb As old medallions to the thumb,

Slide 8: 

Of casement ledges where the moss has grown— Silent as the sleeve-worn stone

Slide 9: 

A poem should be wordless As the flight of birds.

Slide 10: 

A poem should be motionless in time As the moon climbs,

Slide 11: 

Leaving, as the moon releases Twig by twig the night entangled tree.

Leaving, as the moon behind the winter leaves, Memory by memory the mind―

For all the history of grief

An empty doorway

and a maple leaf.

The leaning grasses
