96. This Poem


is for the quiet, uncelebrated

things of the world--

the road to no familiar place,

love's skill on a troubled night,

the unpublished poem and lost song,

the way of the wild drake,

and night's festival of sound;

for body's silent defeat of disease,

and mysteries that hold their secrets.

For multitudes of creatures and created

things clothed in the graceful sanctity

of their rightful natures.



Joseph Harris
