The Night Cry
Not with my full strength O not yet with my full strength.
Kneeling down to be closer to the water
He had been drawn from his home by the gray fields
To the black water
Whose far runnels sounded distinct
In the dawn of the gray fields
The principles he’d fought for
The dog saving him
Which had comforted him without meaning to
A Vase of Flowers
The vase is white and would be a cylinder
If a cylinder were wider at the top than at the bottom.
The flowers are red, white and blue.
All contact with the flowers is forbidden.
The white flowers strain upward
Into a pallid air of their references,
Pushed slightly by the red and blue flowers.
If you were going to be jealous of the flowers,
Please forget it.
They mean absolutely nothing to me.
