water babies

I have not forgotten the way, but a little.

I waited in the blue to lie there, and be still—

refusing to mourn the Winter, and how one

is so much like another. Something was burning

in the sky but that was so far above

I barely had to blink to clear it from the lens.

And under, the cold was a Kingly comfort—

tender hands poised in the green growths; benign water-princes

that will spread until the water silences their songs—
