Day 6

From Ravi Shankar's Instrumentality, from Cherry Grove Collections, 2004:


The clearing in the hills entreats
Empty rapture, shepherding hours'
Stray flocks until nothing bleats
Under the skies; insures the dower
Left for us will never cease to remain
Itself if only we proceed by twos
Into duration--spiky vervain
Is ubiquitous regard malentendu,
Our home's away, the sun's ablaze,
The way you hold up the spheres
Forms a love opaque to paraphrase
But I'll try: we've abolished fear.
