“days not gotten”


“Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion:
And unto thee shall the vow be performed.” – Psalm 65:1


days not gotten where I’m bound,
this pull, this lure, this “to-you” sound,

red-wing blackbird drawing on,
buckets full of winnowed cloud.

days not gotten; Lord, I try,
shielding eye from lowing sky

facing down the pushing wind
for the keep of kith and kin.

yet come bull-rush pond I curve,
here to still your waters by.

days not gotten, save where found;
you and me, another round.
