The Poem of Poems
(By Greg Alan Brownderville)
A boy passes ghost-like through a curtain of weeping willow.
In rainbow-stained apparel, birds are singing a cappella.
Suddenly I sense it, in the birds and in the child:
The world is a poem growing wild.
A dewdrop on a blade of grass soon slips from where it clung
Like a perfect word that gathers on the tip of a poet’s tongue.
And men are merely characters to love and be defiled.
God is a poem growing wild.
