Music: Goldberg Variations, Variation 10.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Fifty-eight has fields that now lie fallow,
In which exuberance is well interred.
Fierce desire roams the windrows still,
Tempered by a sense of the absurd,
Yet resonant with what such wishes hallow.
Even in the winter that will follow,
