Richard Outram : Poems
Round of Life
From: Man in Love. Erin, Ont. : Porcupine's Quill, 1985.
Let us the fruit of Love's pursuit
Of Jenny Wren, of speckled hen,
Here is an egg. Without a leg
to stand on:
When laid to rest, it must the nest
Death is the norm: this perfect form
We contemplate, may to our fate
Herein is held, without a weld,
A germ of flight, '... world of delight,'
Which is, when broached, & sometime poached,
That thereby we may likewise be
