BLUE HERON STONE
Because I could not bring back
the blue heron
who watched us,
out of the river's shadows,
and then flew heavily away--
because I could not keep
her yellow metal eye
to remind me of fierceness--
I kept this stone.
Blue-grey, like the heron,
layered by millions of years in the sea,
by thousands of years in the river,
it is the circling clouds of a storm;
it is all weathers, all calm,
all the weight that keeps you from me
and holds us to the earth.
