trust (another poem)

File:1911 Britannica - Lace 24.jpg




dark, in the mine of our heart,

**rusted, wreaked fender and hood, the

****wind and sleet

****in our face–

through fog we see

****the sun rise bleary



and yet more, the death day

**and its fires–

**perhaps we can never tell which

******shadow will be the one,

******the unforeseen, the death of



death, which the flower is.

**trust the counter-current, then:

**be with me, my darling

****in the clapboard house

********new painted,

********your eloquent form seen

**********against the door,

lacy, leaping in the wind.
