At Willard Brook : Poem In Your Post

November 18, 1961

Spirit like water
moulded by unseen stone
and sandbar, pleats and funnels
according to its own
submerged necessity —
to the indolent eye
pure willfulness, to the stray
pine-needle boiling
in that cascade-bent pool
a random fury: Law,
if that's what's wanted, lies
asking to be read
in the dried brook-bed.

                     - Adrienne Rich
Here's my next installment of the Adrienne Rich fest for this month's poetry feature.  Busy week, so 'nuf said.
