Off Warding

Silence of late winter
First winter night
Set straight the phonetic
Partnership meaning sounds
Of the voices raised too
High and keening raised
Much more than loss thought
Gained heavy consequence
For however much her
Warding off tense counterweight
Had dissonance in seeming
To set us straight still
Silence over bearing arise
Dramatic falling brick by
Brick did not sentence
Her sentinel situation did
Not rhythm rhyme us transpired
Never to deny us nor drown
Out its lightning give me thy
Sun the woman’s warding
Off warding virtues abdomen
Present tense to love what is
And let it happen as it
Was always sensed
And meant to be.
