    I absolutely love love love Ciardi's poetry, but I was disappointed to find that my favourite of is poems, 'My Father's Watch', is not available on poemhunter. Any chance this could be rectified?

An Apartment With A View

I am in Rome, Vatican bells tolling
a windowful of God and Bernini.
My neighbor, the Pope, has died
and God overnight, has wept
black mantles over the sainted
stone age whose skirted shadows
flit through to the main cave.

I nurse a cold. It must be error
