The Moment of the Poem 

The Moment of the Poem

In order to write a poem,

there must be an intense

concentration of thought,

a focus of perspective

which shuts out all

peripheral considerations,

and reveals at its center

a single, illumined thing,

mystery unfolding,

the blossom

unmasking at last.

Only the slow dreary work of days,

the minute by minute

burrowing inward,

will free the moment of its


let it shine forth unblemished

in its own essential light,

naked clarity,

final radiance.
