Someone will
sweep the fallen
petals away

away. I know,
I know. Weight of
red shadows.

--Cid Corman

The leaf that moved with the wind
moves
with the stream.
--Cid Corman


She tells her love while half asleep,
In the dark hours,
With half words whispered low:
As Earth stirs in her winter sleep
And puts out grass and flowers
Despite the snow,
Despite the falling snow.

--Robert Graves

THE END OF THE DAY

Oh who is
so cosy with
despair and
all, they will

not come,
rejuvenated, to
the last spectacle
of the day. Look!

the sun is
sinking, now
it's
gone. Night,

good and sweet
night, good
night, good, good
night, has come.

--Robert Creeley

HERE

What
has happened
makes

the world.
Live
on the edge,

looking.

--Robert Creeley

Edvard Munch
