It’s Good To Be Home Again

Explore #14 - 24.07.2009 & FP

 

Your parents had reached a long slow time,

as animals do, the great center of their lives,

when they gleam in their fells as though eternally,

unchanging. Or as a day can seem eternal

if you lie and watch the full clouds, conscious

of your own time: you soon must get up and leave.

So father, mother, the small shabby town,

its patch of earth going on as though forever: you

forgot them there, where they’d been since you started out

and where you could find them again—as anyone

forgets what he has to lean on

so deeply and heavily that it wounds his side

and the pain seems only himself.
