Morning Poem

God, how the grass grows heavy in the cream
of dark autumn dawn. I ache for the thin-
lipped mouth of morning to sing its sparse light
as a hymn slowly flown to these realms
of shadowed repose. What a cold bright thing I am.
Little knife light day drawn to the opaque
gloaming of my drowsy fortress. Mother
sleep, Mighty Mother dream, burn´┐Żlet this first
flame bringing its purple, soft swing set this
wild-wooden world to dancing. Let swell the blood
to the grain, to the blade.
