Axe Handles1983One afternoon the last week in April

Showing Kai how to throw a hatchet

One-half turn and it sticks in a stump.

He recalls the hatchet-head

Without a handle, in the shop

And go gets it, and wants it for his own.

A broken-off axe handle behind the door

Is long enough for a hatchet,

We cut it to length and take it

With the hatchet head

And working hatchet, to the wood block.

There I begin to shape the old handle

With the hatchet, and the phraseFirst learned from Ezra Pound

Rings in my ears!

"When making an axe handlethe pattern is not far off."

And I say this to Kai

"Look:We'll shape the handle

By checking the handle

Of the axe we cut with-"

And he sees.And I hear it again:

It's in Lu Ji's
