these days are a harvest for the work you have done

and looking back
at the past
you see the way it was before

surely the place you are
is better than the falling landscape
and the tearing winds?

surely where you have travelled to
will provide some safety from the storm
that is your life?


all the dogs are barking
and the moon is a slipper on the foot of night
the trees are shouting

the liver of the land
is cut open   and the snow bursts
into flower        where you were once


has vanished
the new country beckons
make your way there

and take all the lessons
of the wars you have fought
to the new destination

put away the hard feelings
and state the case for mercy
these days are a harvest for the work you have done


these days are a harvest for the work you have done
