i have found what you are like

from Five Sonnets for Men's Voices (T.B.B.) a cappella

(opening)

i have found what you are like
the rain,

             (Who feathers frightened fields
with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind
and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of green thrilling light
                                    with thinned
newfragile yellows

                          lurch and.press
-in the woods
                 which
                           stutter
                                    and

                                             sing
And the coolness of your smile is
stirringofbirds between my arms; . . .
