Eyesight



It was May before my
Attention came
To spring and

My word I said
To the southern slopes
I’ve

Missed it, it
Came and went before
I got right to see:

Don’t worry, said the mountain,
Try the later northern slopes
Or if

You can climb, climb
Into spring: but
Said the mountain

It’s not that way
With all things, some
That go are gone
