by Robert Bly
from his collection entitled Morning Poems

I'd like to have spent my life making
Clothespins. Nothing would be harmed,
Except some pines, probably on land
I owned and would replant. I'd see
My work on clotheslines near some lake,
Up north on a day in October, 
Perhaps twelve clothespins, the wood
Still fresh, and a light wind blowing.

Red Barn and Tree Snow by Eyvind Earle

Mountains and plains,
   all are captured by the snow -
     nothing remains.
