A Blessing
Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,
Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.
And the eyes of those two Indian ponies
Darken with kindness.

blowing like a leaf in green shadow.
Down the ravine behind the empty house,

Near the South Dakota border,
The moon is out hunting, everywhere,
Delivering fire,
...
Relieved, I let the book fall behind a stone.
I climb a slight rise of grass.
I do not want to disturb the ants
Who are walking single file up the fence post,
...
