Skeleton wood, the slate within the storm
A figure in a hood, the fog, the form

Smoke in the air, a pheasant’s feather
And everything bends around the weather

The snap, the step, the brook, the stone
Where the Ottawa slept, the grain, the bone

A Summer Place, nineteen fifty-nine
Call it a November Place, yours and mine

The lake, the swale, the dune is overgrown
Bayberry trail, the grain against the stone

Iroquois on the rill haunt Sleepy Hollow
Descend the Battenkill, hard and shallow

Negatives of glass, sepia tones
Roots of sassafras, the last train home

O Verão do Amor, O Verão de Quarenta e Dois
Sinta eles em uma luva aquecida por você
