[Robert P. T. Coffin] (1892 - 1955 / Brunswick, Maine)

Crystal Moment

Once or twice this side of death
Things can make one hold his breath.
From my boyhood I remember
A crystal moment of September.

A wooded island rang with sounds
Of church bells in the throats of hounds.

A buck leaped out and took the tide
