Text of the Poem

Now one might catch it see it
shift almost substantial blue
white yellow light near roof’s edge
become intense definition think
of the spinning world is it as 5
ever this plate of apparent life
makes all sit patient hold on
chute the sled plunges down ends
down the hill beyond sight down
into field’s darkness as time for 10
supper here left years behind waits
patient in mind remembers the time.
