Moonrise


The mildest rosy moon has set,
No wolf, no war, no tidal wave
In silence sing both deep and wet,
Ringing shake the empty cave.

No wolf, no war, no tidal wave,
Sunrise wake bruised yellow air,
Ringing shake the empty cave,
Rain catch bell and bowl with care.

Sunrise wake bruised yellow air,
Silence, broken, dip and swell.
Rain catch bell and bowl with care,
Wash this bird or man or hell.

Silence, broken, dip and swell,
Break and mangle living bone.
Wash this bird or man or hell,
Broken damn or magi stone.

No wolf, no war, no tidal wave,
Breathe fine mist, green leaf, dark earth.
Ringing shake the empty cave,
Moonrise sing wise bright rebirth.

(Pantoum)
