THE NORTHEASTER — A Poem

the air hangs still

too still

a dark mass creeps across

the bright blue of the northern sky

moving out from the land

like a black glacier

out to sea

the gulls seem to sense

swing wildly crying

to the south

 

I listen

 

the wind jumps

suddenly cool against

my cheek

to the northeast

sky and sea merge

to gray
