Robert Creeley

(1926-2005 / United States)

For No Clear Reason


I dreamt last night
the fright was over, that
the dust came, and then water,
and women and men, together
again, and all was quiet
in the dim moon’s light.


A paean of such patience—
laughing, laughing at me,
and the days extend over
the earth’s great cover,
grass, trees, and flower-
ing season, for no clear reason.

Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
