enraptured

art by lynn

…Of fabulous grass and eternal voices by a beech,

Feed the gaping need of my senses, give me ad lib

To pray unselfconsciously with overflowing speech

For this soul needs to be honoured with a new dress woven

From green and blue things and arguments that cannot be proven.”

 

-Patrick Kavanaugh (from Canal Walk, from Collected Poems, 2004)
