A Cornucopia of Elegies

.


clear as time when the air was green
and tenderfeet knew the ballet of beginning

a tern-like teen on one leg
in the surf by a sea

a swift on a draft of blinks
in the hour of someday-but-not-now—

time is a cornucopia of elegies
the master of poets complicit
since the word became flesh
