Artist Notes
© 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved End of Summer An agitation of the air, A perturbation of the light Admonished me the unloved year Would turn on its hinge that night. I stood in the disenchanted field Amid the stubble and the stones Amaded, while a small worm lisped to me The song of my marrow-bones. Blue poured into summer blue, A hawk broke from his cloudless tower, The roof of the silo blazed, and I knew That part of my life was forever over. Already the iron door of the North Clangs open: birds,leaves,snows Order their populations forth, And a cruel wind blows. ~ Stanley Kunitz ~ Note: 'Amaded' is an Old English word meaning 'demented, mad, distracted'.
