    The best I have seen for long, good poetic understanding and structure, content without direct preaching. Pleasure to read.

Sunday Comfort

Like the slow-note embrace of evensong,
heavy-scented on the darkening air;
like the sky diffused with sun-paintings,
blessing my muddied fingers
and my horse’s
gardened grave;
like the sunrise strokes
on trunk edges
in honour of the dawn chorus;

[Hata Bildir]
