Cold Winter, Wyoming

first printing in the US

written at Yellowstone

 

Yellowstone, Yellowstone, Kings to go forth

Yellowstone, Yellowstone, songs to the North

O Norther a-bluster, from left of the Dawn,

Proclaim the Cold Winter:  "Come King and come Pawn,

 

Come Grizzly and Grouse, now Squirrel and Snake,

Fore the frost or the snow, mid a gold Aspen brake

Neath the shade of the Fir and the Pine and the Spruce

While the Buffalo graze with the Elk and the Moose."

Moonpath - first printed work, West Sussex UK

written at Louisiana State University

Silver glimmer, lunar line

Lake and river, moon and shin-

ing down the center, ray of night

Platinum-minted splay of light.

 

Movement quick remaining fast,

Pavement brickless, sterling cast,

Grasp me net to no avail,

Glassy wet as fishes' mail.

 

O fluorescent dancing sprite;

Effervescent, glancing bright.

Printed in Decanto Poetry
