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.
Dylan Thomas's ocean-churning storminess,
Theodore Roethke's gentle rain of light.
City sparrow rooting for crumbs
amid blackening patches of snow.
Poetry by Thomas DeFreitas
