YOU

12-19-97



I see four flaming poplar trees
from my window:
yellow flames in the fall,
stick flames in the winter.
I have not been here for spring.
In summer, late summer,
I was otherwised occupied:
getting to know you
in the garden where you polish
your stone,
in the white room
where you worry and laugh.

In the spring, when the daffodils
bloom before the lilacs,
let the stone absorb oil from your hands,
let the sphere complete its fullness,
let the alabaster become like a crystal.
Look!
Let it reflect you as you are.
