Long Afternoon at the Edge of Little Sister Pond
As for life
how it has been hard as flint,
and long pale afternoons besides,
though warm and watched over
Every day I walk out into the world
dog love, water love, little-serpent love,
stopping, and lying down at last
and we will pretend to melt away into the leaves.
