Transcript of After the Rain


Bright is the air now
someone has hung diamonds in
the trees;
the crumpled leaves lie wetly furled
where the wind has hurled them
earthward;
this is the time the oriole turns
anxious for its flimsy nest,
but still its throat is sweet
above the fluttering in its breast.
The pools that divided the lawn
in miniature padifields
are dwindled to a winding Milky Way,
and there, beneath the fig tree
heavy with fruit
the ripe figs bloat
like scarlet pincushions on the pond.
Even the fish flash a more silvery scale
in the luscent water.
