Archie Randolph Ammons Winter Poems

  • 1.
    There is now not a single
    leaf on the cherry tree:
    except when the jay
    plummets in, lights, and,
  • 2.
    Silver will lie where she lies
    sun-out, whatever turning the world does,
    longeared in her ashen, earless,
    floating world:
  • 3.
    1) An individual spider web
    identifies a species:

    an order of instinct prevails
  • 4.
    I don't know somehow it seems sufficient
    to see and hear whatever coming and going is,
    losing the self to the victory
    of stones and trees,
  • 5.
    I went for a walk over the dunes again this morning
    to the sea,
    then turned right along
    the surf

Poem of the day

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem
Beatrice. (From Dante. Purgatorio, Xxx., Xxxi.)
 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Even as the Blessed, at the final summons,
Shall rise up quickened, each one from his grave,
Wearing again the garments of the flesh,
So, upon that celestial chariot,
A hundred rose
ad vocem tanti senis
Ministers and messengers of life eternal.
