Stillness

“Now I am given

a taste of the grey foretold by all and sundry,

a grey both heavy and chill. I’ve boasted I would not care,

I’m London-born. And I won’t. I’ll dig in,

into my days, having come here to live, not to visit.

Gray is the price

of neighboring with eagles, of knowing

a mountain’s vast presence, seen or unseen.

from “Settling” by Levertov
