A POEM BEFORE
(Bedtime) ~











I'm off to the river on a horse,
who'll halt a little when I think a little.

Isn't it, Don!

The time of horse and rider feeling one another. Suspended, patient, respectful.

Reminds me of the DH Lawrence poem with a snowflake in the mane. Or is it Bly's? Or is it all of ours?

Nothing like being stopped mid-step
all's well, Bob
