Green


On this island, even gray is green.

Clouds, thus abandoned,

falls, streams,

wheel, veil, iron,

rust.

Now, you come a long way,
your lean mast solemn

as a crucifix.

Girls meet you at the shore,
their great green woods burning.

And what do you bring?

More,

as green as the green graves
they wore long before the advent
of your blue, blue world.

Green as they are, Jan, maybe they’ll ripen one day. Thank you....
