H. D. - Garden

I

You are clear
O rose, cut in rock,
hard as the descent of hail.

I could scrape the colour
from the petals
like spilt dye from a rock.

If I could break you
I could break a tree.

If I could stir
I could break a tree--
I could break you.

II

O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.

Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air--
fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts
the points of pears
and rounds the grapes.

Cut the heat--
plough through it,
turning it on either side
of your path.

Can I simply say what a reuiotdcn to seek out somebody who really is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You positively know methods to convey a problem to mild and make it important. More folks must read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more common since you undoubtedly have the gift.
