APRIL IS POETRY MONTH: W. S. Merwin's 'Sight'
a single cell
found that it was full of light
and for the first time there was seeing
I was a bird
I could see where the stars had turned
and I set out on my journey
in the head of a mountain goat
I could see across a valley
under the shining trees something moving
in the green sea
I saw two sides of the water
and swam between them
look at you
in the first light of the morning
for as long as I can
