At the earliest ending of winter,
In March, a scrawny cry from outside
Seemed like a sound in his mind.
 
He knew that he heard it,
A bird’s cry at daylight or before,
In the early March wind.
 
The sun was rising at six,
No longer a battered panache above snow . . .
It would have been outside.
 
It was not from the vast ventriloquism
Of sleep’s faded papier mâché . . .
The sun was coming from outside.
 
That scrawny cry—it was
A chorister whose c preceded the choir.
It was part of the colossal sun,
 
Surrounded by its choral rings,
Still far away. It was like
A new knowledge of reality.
