WINDFLOWER LEAF, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: This flower is repeated
Last Line: The wind young and strong lets these last longer than stones.
Subject(s): Flowers; Wind


THIS flower is repeated
out of old winds, out of
old times.

The wind repeats these, it
must have these, over and
over again.

Oh, windflowers so fresh,
Oh, beautiful leaves, here
now again.

The domes over
fall to pieces.
The stones under
fall to pieces.
Rain and ice
wreck the works.
The wind keeps, the windflowers keep, the leaves last,
The wind young and strong lets these last longer than stones.
