House of Light1990The kingfisher rises out of the black wave

like a blue flower, in his beak

he carries a silver leaf. I think this is

the prettiest world--so long as you don't mind

a little dying, how could there be a day in yourwhole life

that doesn't have its splash of happiness?

There are more fish than there are leaves

on a thousand trees, and anyway the kingfisher

wasn't born to think about it, or anything else.

When the wave snaps shut over his blue head, thewater

remains water--hunger is the only story

he has ever heard in his life that he couldbelieve.

I don't say he's right. Neither

do I say he's wrong. Religiously he swallows thesilver leaf

with its broken red river, and with a rough andeasy cry

I couldn't rouse out of my thoughtful body

if my life depended on it, he swings back

over the bright sea to do the same thing, to do it

(as I long to do something, anything) perfectly.
