Child from Ariel (1965)


Your clear eye is the one absolutely beautiful thing.

I want to fill it with color and ducks,

The zoo of the new
Whose name you meditate --

April snowdrop, Indian pipe,

Little
Stalk without wrinkle,

Pool in which images

Should be grand and classical
Not this troublous

Wringing of hands, this dark

Ceiling without a star.


1969 – America puts the first man on the moon.
