I know flies in milk
I know the man by his clothes
I know fair weather from foul
I know the apple by the tree
I know the tree when I see the sap
I know when all is one
I know who labors and who loafs
I know everything but myself.

I know the coat by the collar

I know the monk by the cowl

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Susan Williams 18 March 2018

I love his poetry- and I think some of the flow of his poetry must be due to the fine job of translating by Galway Kinnell. The structure of this poem is very similar to another of his poems that I just read but the framework works for me. I will spend more hours reading this poet. He has been well worth the effort so far! I would give this a ten if PH allowed me to vote.
