Subject(s): Clouds; Cypress Trees; Rain


Though thieving centuries grip ageing trees
and strip them gray of foliage and fruit
and bring the weary roots themselves surcease
only after their sap is frozen mute,

The cypresses maintain their phallic faith,
that skies, in their majestic double round,
have suns and moons enough to sunder clouds --
and clouds enough to thunder rain on death!
