Best Poem of michael oliver

From This Bridge

From this bridge of time's shadow
The white blosssom suspends the machinery
Its impermanence witheld spring bright sharp

The stream flows an uneven script
A revel of light rolling soliloquy

As after the wilting and dropping
Petal white absolves with inert narrative

Upon reflection what is the change?
The ever quality the water word
Has a permanence bright spring clear

Read the full of From This Bridge

On Entering

Dementia gone
A widow now
A hand extends
To lose her tears
