In its beginning
the truth of poetry is a light,
yet no mere spark of a moment,
From 'The truth of poetry' by Michael D. Higgins

Now that an early frost
Crinkles the crackling leaves
Down at the lake's edge,
The earth in an iron ridge
Holds hard, no longer keeps
A print where she has past.
From 'Autumn song' by Maurice Craig
