By Susan Stewart
“One of the best poets of the final fifty years.” —Salt
to the Nth, just like the fact of an ending
unskeined around the crust of the white field.
Though it occurred just once, I
am sending the thought
of the thought
to come back to
the box prior to the mowing.
When a goldfinch swayed
on a blue stem stalk,
and the wind and the sun
stirred the hay.
—from “After the Mowing”
