Draft of a New Poem

When not watching the weather, this had all my attention this weekend. I'll leave it up for a few hours, then make it go "poof"!

I have a busy day today: an emergency weather meeting at 7:15 this morning (you see, my interest in rain and storms is not entirely casual) then I have to be back in town for court at 8:30.



This is one for which a chromolithograph survives.



Here is the chromolithograph.




*poof!*

I love this. The way the poem goes sideways toward these endings—and I love the break leaving 'to do this' so far away.

Now every time I see a hummingbird I think of you, Heade, these poems. Which is a lovely thing.
