The Scenic Route

The scenic route, for budding leaves

Collecting static light

From muddy pools, and talk disclosing

Only veiled sight.


The long way ’round, past angel stations

Past the barrow next,

Then homeward turning at the cross

To find some earthly rest.


Homeward! To that last enclave,

That attic wilderness.
