Moonrise Poem by Hilda Doolittle

Moonrise

Rating: 4.5


Will you glimmer on the sea?
Will you fling your spear-head
On the shore?
What note shall we pitch?

We have a song,
On the bank we share our arrows—
The loosed string tells our note:

O flight,
Bring her swiftly to our song.
She is great,
We measure her by the pine-trees.

What I particularly like about her is that her style and her topics change to enhance each poem-she's not a one-trick pony!
