THE RED HEART
III The Great Lakes Suite


James Reaney

 

back  next


Niagara Falls


When the bridegroom
Reaches the room
With breath bated
He approaches
The momen long awaited.
He takes off his loud cravat
And his shirt and his hat,
His trousers and his shoes,
And his undershirt and drawers.
Naked, as from his mother,
He attempts with another
To return to the sweet night of the womb.
