Black And White (A Movie Poem)
No death within a dappled grove
No 'Go; and bid the soldiers shoot'
No butterfly just out of reach
No captain, climbing with his flute-
Nor swinging in the children's swings
Nor line dance led by death, in vain
Nor love found with the loss of wings
Nor child's redemptive cry in rain-
Though birds shift course in glinting sun
And love appear in loved son's face
No sorrow's end, no joy begun
Can change the bent of your eyes' grace.
