Why does their falling move Him, the friend, the unsuspected lightning: that He walk our garden with no flowers upon His friend? what did He say in tears (grief scalding my hands, cold hands springing sleep like a manacle) drawing my eyes a space that had seen God, back to His human face?  I choose that rock to stand: man and clean of hand and blessed, whose even second choice was Christ. Saint Stephen That day stones fell I died unknowable, a mound of dust for heaven to make man of. That day stones beat like stone beasts for a forced entry to eat my heart: I prayed awhile then opened brief and tossed them meat.

Listen; the chime, the synonym made death a wine, turned all His body rose.  Search death out and sought death in their cities, and was taken young years and all, composed in ground like wintering bees and after respite stood again in tremendous mime, (shut doors sprung, permeable world) all we would come to. Death Casts No Light On the Mind It is not for that; not permeable at all, an Easter cross. He crossed himself, and climbed Then then Page 40 imagination springs; it tastes mulberries, risen tigers, Himalayas, summer lightning — He leaped eternity (whisper goes), a tiger to its prey.

Blade, hoe, manhood — what have my tools to do with What wakes in her?  Said God I would give my Son to them. In a field of flowers, wide dawn to dusk, one hesitant flower more, only one more: in a sky already great with stars, one star more at the edge, hardly in evening. He will not make turmoil: one child more led by his father's hand into a park of children: one voice adds little: one voice to a choir, another among the swings, linked in a ring­around.  Never to say Children: I am all your bloom and odor and starlight.
