Donald Revell




Pure


Stricken inside her heart a tree

And outside the wind clattering

Metal over stones

Where can she go

There’s no silence to go to



Let me tell about vanity and a bee

Lady

Better to die inside a flower

Better to bind your soul in ice

And when you stand upright

Be a mountain Christ’s footstool



I could not sleep last night for thinking

Mountain and stricken inside your heart

A tree
