People are putting up storm windows now Or w

People are putting up storm windows now
Or were this morning until the heavy rain
Drove them indoors. So coming home at noon
I saw storm windows lying on the ground
Frame full of rain through the water and glass
I saw the crushed grass how it seemed to stream
Away in lines like seaweed on the tide
Or blades of wheat leaning under the wind.
The ripple and splash of rain on the blurred glass
Seemed that it briefly said as I walked by
Something I should have liked to say to you
Something... the dry grass bent under the pane
Brimful of bouncing water... something of
A swaying clarity which blindly echoes
This lonely afternoon of memories
And missed desires while the wintry rain
Unspeakable the distance in the mind!
Runs on the standing windows and away..
