Southern Icarus
 

Windborne, lover of heights,
unspooled from the truck’s wildly lurching embrace,
you climb, skittish kite . . .

What do you know of the world’s despair,
gliding in vast solitariness there,

O life-affirming season, mild and fair

  Yet bursting with life, rousing long-dulled sense,

Whose spark of youth electrifies the air

Immortal Aphrodite, throned in splendor!
Wile-weaving daughter of Zeus, enchantress, and beguiler!

heeding my prayers as you did before;
