Julia Rose Lewis

The Midwife 


the obsolete sense of sea

gold then hen mere then maid one

egg springs on the white ferry

east here east her nest


returning the moonstone through

blueberry skin rabbit thin

off spring off spring off spring off

the grey eyed morning


the bush wishes green wishes

green-pink wishes pink-purple

wishes ripe and wild fall down

brown eyed evening


low and growing bear

here rings the summon to boom

blue the rabbit bloom
