The Innocence

The Innocence

Looking to the sea, it is a line
Of unbroken mountains.

It is the sky.
It is the ground. There
We live it, on it.

It is a mist
Now tangent to another
Quiet. Here the leaves
Come, there
Is the rock in evidence

Or evidence.
What I come to do
Is partial, partially kept.



Poem The Innocence - Robert Creeley
