"Just Thinking", by William Stafford

Got up on a cool morning. Leaned out a window.

No cloud, no wind. Air that flowers held

For awhile. Some dove somewhere.

Been on probation most of my life. And

The rest of my life condemned. So these moments

Count for a lot – peace, you know.

Let the bucket of memory down into the well,

Bring it up. Cool, cool minutes. No one

Stirring, no plans. Just being there.

This is what the whole thing is about.
