A Blessing

James Wright, 19271980

Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,_x000D_
Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass._x000D_
And the eyes of those two Indian ponies_x000D_
Darken with kindness._x000D_
They have come gladly out of the willows_x000D_
To welcome my friend and me._x000D_
We step over the barbed wire into the pasture_x000D_
Where they have been grazing all day, alone._x000D_
They ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness_x000D_
That we have come._x000D_
They bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other._x000D_
There is no loneliness like theirs._x000D_
At home once more,_x000D_
They begin munching the young tufts of spring in the darkness._x000D_
I would like to hold the slenderer one in my arms,_x000D_
For she has walked over to me_x000D_
And nuzzled my left hand._x000D_
She is black and white,_x000D_
Her mane falls wild on her forehead,_x000D_
And the light breeze moves me to caress her long ear_x000D_
That is delicate as the skin over a girl’s wrist._x000D_
Suddenly I realize_x000D_
That if I stepped out of my body I would break_x000D_
Into blossom.
