AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Promises.


DARK WATER

In the midnight Arctic Seas,
stained tropical rivers at dawn,
the Gulf Stream at noon,
where thin shafts of light
chisel down into blue black;
a small creek in the evening shade
beneath willows and sycamores;
in northern rivers,
where salmon lie
in deep veridian hollows.
It is always the dark water
which promises the most.
