Tell me who or what you love
she asks us.
And we begin to write our lists--
I love my wife,
my boys,
my job,
my parish church;
I love my house
in the woods,
and I love the woods--
each is a turn

I love the gift
of poetry--
the images that come
while driving
to work,
hearing a bite
of conversation,
seeing turkeys
cross the road--
an act
of kindness
in the midst of illness--

in all of these,
a going down
into the image,
the pen dancing
on the page,
a word rising,
a name said
that calls me
