 Heaven

by Margaret Gibson

The leaves are turning, one by one carried away in the crisp wind.
 In one letter he penned,
Coleridge turned away, calling love 
a local anguish he meant to leave
 behind him. Away, away,
 says the blue and gold day, and no one hears it but the wind, whose law
 it echoes. The dog has a red ball to chase.
You pick a flat, perfect stone for the wall you hope to live long enough
 to rebuild. I prune
 briars, pick burrs from the dog's fur.
 I teach Come and Sit. Sit here—
a longer sit beneath the cedars. The grass is freshly cut,
 sun low, all the energy
 of a summer's day rushing into bulb and root.
 The dog runs off, returns. The stones balance
 steeply. Good work. Good dog. This is
 heaven. Sit. Stay.

For the animal shall not be measured by man.  In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we  shall never hear.  They are not brethren, they are not underlings, they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.  Henry Beston
