The reflective river, reflecting, 
Reflects leaves, trees, themes, memes,

Men and me, flat landscapes 
Of people skating round bonfires,

Feasting high summer with buttery cobs,
Raising a red barn in pilgrim hats,

Or rolling hoops with clickety sticks;
Mirrory people and their alluring concerns,--

Hacked from the fabulous,
Greasy with pig and pie.

As if sky and rock and river
Reflected human magnificence alone

And not some deeper current:
Red, real marrow of the world's bones.
