In twilight the river came
Sighing, sweeping, fresh.

Stuttering dawn flared palely,
With just enough wick to scritch 

Midnight waters into day, and usher them
Into glassy existence once again;

Troughs and shadows among the gems
Astound the verdant vertices. . . .

Then dying afternoon struck heightened whites
From the pulsing wave, over and over--

Too bright to look at, too hot
To sit in the shade, feet in the water. . . .

Now night's arriving eyelid seals the river
All-at-once in nothingness.

I am here, now, without it.
Sighing, sweeping, fresh.
