...AND THE END OF
ALL OUR EXPLORING,
WILL BE TO ARRIVE
WHERE WE STARTED,
AND KNOW THE PLACE
FOR THE FIRST TIME.....

Midwinter spring is its own season.
Sempiternal though sodden
towards sundown,
Suspended in time,
between pole and tropic.
When the short day is brightest,
with frost and fire,
The brief sun flames the ice,
on pond and ditches,
in windless cold
that is the heart's heat,
reflecting in a watery mirror
a glare that is blindness
in the early afternoon.
And glow more intense
than blaze of branch,
or brazier,
stirs the dumb spirit:
no wind ,
but pentecostal fire
in the dark time of the year.
Between melting and freezing
The soul's sap quivers.........
