Far overhead, Stone shines darkly in the moonlight Lookout Point, where we lay In another full moon, and first Peered down into this canyon. Here we camped, by still autumnal Pools, all one warm October. I baked you a bannock birthday cake. Here you did your best paintingsInnocent, wondering landscapes. Very few of them are left Anywhere. You destroyed them In the terrible trouble Of your long sickness. Eighteen years Have passed since that autumn. There was no trail here then. Only a few people knew How to enter this canyon.

Part your lips. My dear, Some day we will be dead. From the face of Filippino's Weary lady, exhausted with The devotion of her worshipper. Across the face of the Duomo The Campanile's blue shadow Marks the mathematics of beauty. In San Miniato the gold Mosaics still glitter through The smoky gloom. At the end Of the Way of the Cross, the dense Cypress wood, full of lovers, Shivering with impatience. As the dark thickens, two by two They take each other. Nightfall, all The wood is filled with soft moaning, As though it were filled with doves.

The sea Breathes like a drowsy woman. The sun moves like a drowsy hand. Poseidon's pillars have endured All tempers of the sea and sun. This is the order of the spheres, The curve of the unwinding fern, And the purple shell in the sea; These are the spaces of the notes Of every kind of music. The world is made of number And moved in order by love. Mankind has risen to this point And can only fall away, As we can only turn homeward Finally the few tourists go, The German photographers, the Bevy of seminarians, And we are left alone.
