Beauty

Mesto, stanco e spirante
that sequence by Scarlatti.

Shakespeare's eighteenth sonnet,
or a poem by Elena.

The sunlit eyes of the lovely woman
from Brooklyn, whom I knew at college.

Birds singing matutinal psalmody.

Sunrise reddening the winter sky.

Monastic liturgy.

Dylan Thomas's ocean-churning storminess,
Theodore Roethke's gentle rain of light.

City sparrow rooting for crumbs
amid blackening patches of snow.
