Poetry 

 

By Katherine Hauswirth

 

 

 

 

Beyond the French Drain

 

The line of blue stone

marks it a place apart

 

This greener place

that astonishes the crab grass

 

Here the mossy bed breathes,

yielding and pushing back without sound

 

Loosing water from spongy depths

into the curled coves between naked toes

 

Filtered by dense tangles

Rinsed with the best, last rain
