Transition Poem # 59: Poems in the Aftermath

Winter Bonnets

            —after Rilke’s Fifth Duino Elegy

 

 

where are those holy wanderers

 

their healing herbs

their ornately flowing inscriptions

 

what crushed them

those fiercely blossoming roses

 

their gaping faces their thin surfaces

savagely wrung out

 

how can we live on without them

their bright red knowing

 

how quiet our still small griefs

in spring summer autumn

 

blindly creating

our usual fallen unripe fruits

 

why this heavy wind

suddenly this laborious nowhere

 

forever saved up forever hidden

how can we make them return

 

snug in their winter bonnets
