It was not Death, for I stood up,
And all the Dead, lie down –
It was not Night, for all the Bells
Put out their Tongues, for Noon. 

It was not Frost, for on my Flesh
I felt Siroccos – crawl –
Nor Fire – for just my Marble feet
Could keep a Chancel, cool – 

And yet, it tasted, like them all,
The Figures I have seen
Set orderly, for Burial,
Reminded me, of mine – 

As if my life were shaven,
And fitted to a frame,
And could not breathe without a key,
And ‘twas like Midnight, some – 

When everything that ticked – has stopped –
And Space stares all around –
Or Grisly frosts – first Autumn morns,
Repeal the Beating Ground – 

But, most like Chaos – Stopless – cool –
Without a Chance, or Spar –
Or even a Report of Land –
To justify – Despair.

The House

Fancied up
With life and beauty –
Lovely blush.


It’s Called Winter

Between fall
And the coming spring,
Cold river.



DNA By Evolutionary Chance?

Who stacked rocks?
Yet double helix
Just happened?

Earth from Space

This is a piece too fair
To be the child of Chance, and not of Care.
No Atoms casually together hurl’d
Could e’er produce so beautiful a world.
