Let yourself curl
up . . .

You are
the universe about its pole. God's not far.

sky clearing

March 27

The moon is out,
the sky is clearing at last.
The air is drier and fresher.
There is a very thin film of ice on the water buckets.
Last end of the old moon. The new moon will be
the moon of Easter.
