a little creed

With thanks to the anonymous student of a fellow Hillsdale graduate who mis-translated a bit of Spanish into the first, resounding, line.

I believe in heaven and winter
Though both confound my eyes.

That leaves lie hid
in sleeping trees
icicled with light

(as if God’s smile
could make their
weeping
bright)

and that the grave
should hide us
ripening
to rise:

I believe in heaven and winter
Though both confound my eyes.
