View From A North Window

For a moment, the sun
on a red barn, dying,
on dry fields still as a gold death-mask
warmed yellow only to the eye
beneath the winter-prophesying sky,
before night's shadow gathers the last straws
of afternoon to its scrawny breast;
the sun on a red barn, dying,
resurrects a lone child, playing.

A Thought Dwelt On

A thought dwelt on
can only grow—

and a weed is a bad thought
where a flower should be.

A thought dwelt on
is a thought given water,

but a weed deprived of water
withers away.
