Poetry Monday

Heather recently posted that she wanted to read more poetry, which reminded me how much I love poetry but I have not spent a lot of time reading it lately. So here is the first of a hopefully ongoing series of Poetry Mondays. For now, they'll all be stuff from books I own.

by Rita Dove

(So there you are at last --
a pip, a button in the grass.
The world's begun
without you.

And no reception but
accumulated time.
Your face hidden but your name
shuddering on air!)
