The Star, By Robert Creeley

October 04, 1998

Such space it comes again to be,

a room of such vast possibility,

a depth so great, a way so free.

Life and its person, thinking to find

a company wherewith to keep the time

a peaceful passage, a constant rhyme,

stumble perforce, must lose their way,

know that they go too far to stay

stars in the sky, children at play.

From "Life & Death" by Robert Creeley (New Directions: 88 pp., $19.95)
