Treasure Island

Steven Federle

(1951 / Cincinnati Ohio)

day's heat


The day’s heat
enfolds me,

green and gold-
en lightly-slipping

rays pour through thin
separations

in my rough-hewn
fence,

and make crosses
bright in
the grass;

but the fog broods,
rising white
as death.

tonight
will be
cold.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
