Queen Anne’s lace

          is hardly

                    prized but

all the same it isn’t

                    idle look

                                      how it

                    stands straight on its

thin stems how it

                     scrubs its white faces

                                with the 

rags of the sun how it

                     makes all the


                                           it can.

Mary Oliver, Swan
