Sunday poem: Louise Gluck

14127801988_80cdbb5a25_b

Living things don’t all require

light in the same degree.

Some of us make our own light: a  silver leaf

like a path no one can use, a shallow

lake of silver in the darkness under the great maples.

 

Louise Gluck, Lamium  in The Wild Iris  (The Ecco Press  1992)
