St. Lucy's Night

William Olsen

for Jean

That houselight, lowest star.  The leaf blowers are quiet.  The longest sentences have all abated.  This one day ends at midnight, like all the rest.  Ordinary nothing John Donne said.  There are books all over the house, most closed, a few open.  The mind is so small that the heart cannot pronounce it.
