HBLL revisited

From Mary Oliver's

From Mary Oliver’s “Blue Horses.”

I forgot my watch there with the books

No, not the time—

I knew it far too well.

But my watch that withstands 5atm of water

(So I learned in the hot tub last night)

Could neither bear down nor bear up against the immensity of beauty

I delighted to comprehend

There at the three-by-three desk.
