Light splashed this morning…
A curious gladness shook me…
and I pick my notebook up
and I start to read aloud
the still-wet words I scribbled
on the blotted page:
“Light splashed …”
I can scarcely wait till tomorrow
when a new life begins for me,
as it does each day,
as it does each day.
~ Stanley Kunitz, from “The Round” in Passing Through: The Later Poems, New and Selected
