Near Heidelberg

Eleanor Goodman

a broken queue of students
claiming love, the quay
of tethered boats
and in the pines
beyond the burg

the river like milk
through moss-covered cliffs.
Unbearable thingness
of things—an extinction of frogs,
a betrayal of need.

Memory in stones and
the lace of too-white edelweiss
in mourning, our mistrust
a waterfall
stricken by weirs.

This immobilized tributary,
starved for greed.
Rutted hill road, gravel,
affection like a trapped
paw gnawed off.


Tomorrow, I will leave you.

Today's poem is thanks to terrain.org

The poem is usually posted between 10pm the previous night and 9 am on the day of the poem. It could be your own or someone else's. It should be something to do with nature, and ideally it should have something to do with the particular day.
