Here you will find the Poem Poem of poet Louise Gluck
In the early evening, a now, as man is bending over his writing table. Slowly he lifts his head; a woman appears, carrying roses. Her face floats to the surface of the mirror, marked with the green spokes of rose stems. It is a form of suffering: then always the transparent page raised to the window until its veins emerge as words finally filled with ink. And I am meant to understand what binds them together or to the gray house held firmly in place by dusk because I must enter their lives: it is spring, the pear tree filming with weak, white blossoms.
