Emily Grosholz

from June

 Silver

 

      Beside the road I took, another road
      Winds under trees that never grow
      Across the long, low hills of Pennsylvania:
      Eucalyptus, date palm, casuarina.
      The absent sea falls underneath the moon.

      Beside a grove of olive trees
      The lost wind silvers, cypresses that bend
      And lean into the sun, another road
      Climbs up a hill behind the distant river,
      Turns under a sheaf of roofs, and disappears.
