       Poem by Daniel David Moses. Looking for thoughts on the pattern of imagery that links the Grand/father to the natural world.

    dotsA Visit in Mid-Summerdots

    You now are little
    more, Grand
    father, than the blue wool
    rumples of your blanket and the berry
    blue veins threading
    through the skin of your untanned
    feet. You are not

    fat enough. Your body's
    receding, though your hands are still
    the same size, and in your pillow
    the same hollow is full
    of your head with its dried
    apple face an insistent
    breath. In the dull after

    noon of this upper
    bedroom your glasses are clean
    ponds your eyes rise
    through, black as the eyes of
    the God of All Frogs, so wise
    they can take the whole
    ceiling in. Your voice, an old

    leaf, scratches the air. You can't live
    for ever, it says. I pour you more
    tea and through the window we
    hear the maples and spruces are
    sifting the gusts from teh August
    thick atmosphere. The sky is so much
    rushing, and soon it will rain here.
