To my big brother, Happy Birthday!


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “To the New Year” by W.S. Merwin: touch, sound, dove, tips, know, hopes, calls, age, hush, hears, stir, possible

Oh brother you always bother
Carries the problems of the world
Any which way that’s possible

Stirs any hope you’d rather
All the touch and sound you unfurled
Like the mission impossible

Hearing the call of earth mother
Tips and knows that can be all hurled
Cooing of the dove and the bell

O brother you always bother
Some hush and age in the dream world
Sometimes things are explosible

Stirs all the love you’d rather
Best if we are in real world
Some are wildly improbable

Happy birthday to my brother
Best wishes and all the others*
