Selected Work
silver thaw
the things I
won’t forgive
rustling leaves . . . 
the flock of sparrows
reverses itself
spring evening—
the puppy wags his tail
in his sleep
grandfather’s hand plow
its worn handles filled
with winter snow
wind in the pampas grass
	 the rowboat strains
    against its mooring
as our visit ends
-- winter twilight
