‘By a lake in Minnesota’ (James Wright 1960)

Up shore from the cloud,
the slow whale of country twilight,
the spume of light falls in to valleys full of roses
and below, out of the placid waters,
two bevers, mother and child, wave out long ripples to the dust of dead leaves on the shore.

And the moon walks,
hunting for hidden dolphins behind the darkening corners of the ground
and down shore from the cloud, I stand
waiting for the dark.
