In the morning, I looked for
the comfort of hymns and came back
At noon, I sought just enough clear
water to fill a bud vase, and found
blush scattered on the walk.
Evening now, and the sun crowns leaves
unearthly orange and red: as if a net
caught all I could not hope
to gather, in this world and the next.
