Tuesday Poem

Old Manuscript by Alfred Kreymborg

 

THE sky
is that beautiful old parchment
in which the sun
and the moon
keep their diary. 5
To read it all,
one must be a linguist
more learned than Father Wisdom;
and a visionary
more clairvoyant than Mother Dream. 10
But to feel it,
one must be an apostle:
one who is more than intimate
In having been, always,
the only confidant— 15
like the earth
or the sea.
