Finally I Understand

Finally I understand
that the wild wood paths
call and light back the moon
unasked.

Finally I understand
how the lone trumpeter swan mourns
white and cool on the still pond
in a green shadow of night.

Finally I understand
that the love ungiven
from the silent,
from the pained,
crosses into such still places
and fills them.
