Eyesight by A. R. Ammons


It was May before my
attention came
to spring and
my word I said
to the southern slopes
missed it, it
came and went before
I got right to see:
don't worry, said the mountain,
try the later northern slopes
or if
you can climb, climb
into spring: but
said the mountain
it's not that way
with all things, some
that go are gone
