Treasure Island

Robert Creeley

(1926-2005 / United States)

The Innocence


Looking to the sea, it is a line
of unbroken mountains.

It is the sky.
It is the ground. There
we live it, on it.

It is a mist
now tangent to another
quiet. Here the leaves
come, there
is the rock in evidence

or evidence.
What I come to do
is partial, partially kept.

And pays us but with earth and dust;
