Questions At Night

Is the sky?

What starts the thunder overhead?
Who makes the crashing noise?


You have not conquered me—it is the surge
Of love itself that beats against my will;
It is the sting of conflict, the old urge

Portrait Of A Machine

What nudity as beautiful as this
Obedient monster purring at its toil;
These naked iron muscles dripping oil

Rainbow’s End

“Do you remember at the rainbow's end
Those flowers trampled by the hurrying rain,
Hanging their heads, knowing they would not spend


I never knew the earth had so much gold --
   The fields run over with it, and this hill,
Hoary and old,
   Is young with buoyant blooms that flame and thrill.
