Lucille Clifton, “the garden of delight” …

Lucille Clifton

“the garden of delight”lucille clifton pic

for some
it is stone
bare smooth
as a buttock
rounding
into the crevasse
of the world

for some
it is extravagant
water    mouths wide
washing together
forever    for some
it is fire
for some air

and for some
certain only of the syllables
it is the element they
search their lives for

eden

for them
it is a test
