enough

before the sun lights
the last leaf,
before autumn blue
fades to a night
thick with stars,
before the dove has called
evening clear
from the telephone wire,
before the geranium has closed
petal by purple fold petal
to the night,
i will drink deeply of here
hold it a moment
cool water to my thirst.
