  1. Into this net of leaves, green as old glass
    That the sun fondles, trembling like images
    In water, this live net, swung overhead
    From branch to branch, what swam? The spider’s thread
  2. Is less passive, where it appears to float
    Like a bright hair clinging to the wind’s coat.
    Hot at work, history neither schemes nor grieves
    Here where the soaking dead are last year’s leaves,
  3. And over them slung, meshed with sun, a net
    No creature wove, none frantically tried to fret.
  4. The huge weight of time without its sting
    Hangs in that greenly cradling woof. A wing
  5. Has caught there, held. Held. But not to stay,
    We know, who, how slowly, walk away.
