The Angle of a Landscape –

The Angle of a Landscape --The Angle of a Landscape —
That every time I wake —
Between my Curtain and the Wall
Upon an ample Crack —

Like a Venetian — waiting —
Accosts my open eye —
Is just a Bough of Apples —
Held slanting, in the Sky —

The Pattern of a Chimney —
The Forehead of a Hill —
Sometimes — a Vane’s Forefinger —
But that’s — Occasional —

The Seasons — shift — my Picture —
Upon my Emerald Bough,
I wake — to find no — Emeralds —
Then — Diamonds — which the Snow

From Polar Caskets — fetched me —
The Chimney — and the Hill —
And just the Steeple’s finger —
These — never stir at all –

Make me a picture of the sun –

Make me a picture of the sun --Make me a picture of the sun —
So I can hang it in my room —
And make believe I’m getting warm
When others call it “Day”!

Draw me a Robin — on a stem —
So I am hearing him, I’ll dream,
And when the Orchards stop their tune —
Put my pretense — away —

Say if it’s really — warm at noon —
Whether it’s Buttercups — that “skim” —
Or Butterflies — that “bloom”?
Then — skip — the frost — upon the lea —
And skip the Russet — on the tree —
Let’s play those — never come!
