Evening Marshes

THE BALTIMORE SUN

Marsh grass is golden

under a late sun,

and wild ducks' wings

whistle with the wind.

We are one:

wild duck and setting sun,

marsh grass around the pond,

earth smells and shadows,

coming cold and early night,

evening star,

and this great emptiness

within me.
