Why I wake early
Freshen the flowers, she said
Where does the temple begin, where does it end?
The poet goes to Indiana
The snow cricket
The lover of earth cannot help herself
Have you seen blacksnake swimming?
How everything adores being alive
Spring at Blackwater : I go through the lessons already learned
Look and see
At Black River
The marsh hawk
Where does the dance begin, where does it end?
What was once the largest shopping center in northern Ohio was built where there had been a pond I used to visit every summer afternoon
"Just a minute," said a voice
This morning I watched the deer
The old poets of China
The best I could do
The wren from Carolina
Some things, say the wise ones
Song of the builders
Goldenrod, late fall
The soul at last
Lingering in happiness.
