SUNDAY POETRY: "DISTANT COASTS"


DISTANT COASTS
by John Gould Fletcher
      from Japanese Prints


 A squall has struck the sea afar off.
    You can feel it quiver
    Over the paper parasol
    With which she shields her face;

    In the drawn-together skirts of her robes,
    As she turns to meet it.
