And mass along these desert floors, to build Their homes of this red rock? Or will they pass And leave the desert here alone with me? I may be here. That rocky shape contains Too much of me to leave, too much of cold And hunger’s written there in that still face, Too much of loneliness and suffering, too. I wanted a job that was big enough for a man— Being mid-wife to a mountain’s big enough. I’ve hammered there, and carved until I know Each curve and crack, each notch upon the stone. The biography of man is written there In every line of that great granite face, The biography of man, and all his dreams.
BANKED FIRES I shall remember when my days are few The twilight on a narrow, winding road; The slender silver moon that days corrode; The star that lent its loveliness to you. The arching of a dream across the years— I shall remember with the slow-winged night The shadow of your hair against the light Of locust trees abloom with frosted tears. I shall remember when my fires are low, The way you looked at me; the words you used; The fragrance of your hurried breath, till lo, Through all the pain of love our spirits fused.
