tree-dividing sky

Figures of light and dark, these two are walking
The winter road from the St. Simeon farm
Toward something that the world is pointing toward
At the white place of the road's vanishing
Between the vertex that the far-lit gray
Of tree-dividing sky finally comes down to
And the wide arrowhead the road itself
Comes up with as a means to its own end.

"Effet de Neige" (after the painting La Route de la ferme Saint-Siméon by Claude Monet), John Hollander
