April Lights (Alfred Starr Hamilton)

“April Lights”

But nevertheless there are some other kinds of blue skies
Some other way of counting the summer clouds that stayed
There is the red moon, by October
Some other kind of February lights
Some other kind of January darkness that is deeper
A bronze rake –
A winding road to where we are this evening

—Alfred Starr Hamilton
—from A Dark Dreambox of Another Kind: The Poems of Alfred Starr Hamilton
