Some Things The World Gave

1
Times in the morning early
When it rained and the long gray
Buildings came forward from darkness
Offering their windows for light.

2
Evenings out there on the plains
When sunset donated farms
That yearned so far to the west that the world
Centered there and bowed down.

3
A teacher at a country school
Walking home past a great marsh
Where ducks came gliding in
She saw the boy out hunting and waved.

4
Silence on a hill where the path ended
And then the forest below
Moving in one long whisper
As evening touched the leaves.

5
Shelter in winter that day
A storm coming, but in the lee
Of an island in a cover with friends
Oh, little bright cup of sun.
