The temple bell sets
the world a-shiver,
your corner of it anyway.

Circle the main hall
a few times; it’s
the least you can do.

With its bulk as fulcrum,
take in a skedaddling kid
on a bike one season too small,
some gorgeously green moss,
and a girl just your type
giving her pooch a
casually brutal jerk on its leash.

A summer storm’s come up
and there’s just time
for Lukacs’ phrase
to leap off the fluttering page:

“Life’s richly blossoming plenitude”.
