Madonna Of All Stillness (variation)

Madonna of all stillness
of intransigent peace
I will begin like snow, again

all roads of light will

meet in you

to clear the whitest whiteness
so far from all this to
break the crystal air with

my sigh:

there is no circumference of tears of

poetry in flight of hidden

sudden departure
you have turned on your starlit heel

banished with all your snows and

there is no end to searching for

another way out

but we will live on in this
orphaned kingdom
diverting all streams to your
