Blue-grey shadows drift

Blue-grey shadows drift Then vanish behind the rocks Herons are hiding A newborn duckling Floats by cradled in dark waves Hawks have no pity August afternoon Heat sits weaving a blanket Women cook supper

Long before sunset Half-moon rules the sky One-eyed queen enthroned Lakeside liturgy Waves mumble like penitents All is forgiven Summer is leaving Across the grieving water The loon cries farewell
