Text of poem

Winter ducks have settled on the river,
their white chests, white sides
outlined in black. Their black heads shine,
against the gray morning.
The usual little brown ducks
paddle around the new flock, all huddling
in the gray salt water under gray clouds.
A red tug pokes a red barge into line,
spewing dark filth into the air. The bridges
and trees are a darker gray through
the sprinkling of snowflakes in the rain.

I will the water down
through the rime
into the deepest tree roots.
They haven’t had rain
like this in a decade:
a week of steady soaking,
relentless and cold,
that feeds the roots
without waking them.
It may be the saving of the trees.

It’s January, the gray time after
the green and red glitter of Christmas.
The recognizable child recedes
once more to the amorphous
love that needs gray to reveal itself,
the steady pulse of tide on oil-darkened rocks,
the ducks fluffed against cold,
rocking on the ripples, the world
which exists in itself, for itself,
like Stevens’ Snow Man, aside from human
needs or longing, but which awakens the vague
reaching for what hovers at the edge of our sight,
what tests the arctic boundaries
of our very human hearts.

Not all prayer is articulate;
sometimes it floats gray and still
with fluffed feathers on the chill river.
