Poem …


Amid the darkness place the sun,

That veteran god, from deepest night

Evoking brightest day. Make plain

Imagination’s gestures are

But acts of faith, and loss of faith 

An absence of imagination.

Merely perceiving misperceives:

We must invite what our eye bears —

Sunflower, catbird, passing cloud —

Into the tabernacle of the heart,

There where the lamp of vision flares.
