Today's poem is by Jeannine Savard
From the Undergrowth
New roses flush in the serein
as a black cat stretches
just short of the heavy rake
with its uncertain leanGood luck
like the glimpse of a jewel in the sand,
for anything about to happen, but not
tied to a load of bricks, a wall of questions
requiring of her a vision.
She thinks reserve brings the cries of love
Whose voice beside the cricket's
in the lavish growth of wild ivy and sunset
makes her drowsy, lucid with faith again?
Whose virtue made sooth inside her?
Credence sinks for the night ahead.
A slivered moon spools waves with the wind.
The subtlest pearl, hers alone.
