After the flood

Jane Dougherty Writes

The banks are quiet now
After the flood.
Green grass grows
And golden kingcups
Among the sedge.
The banks are green
Where the ruins of trees
Rest awhile
After the turbulent waters ebb
Until the green grass
And golden kingcups
Weave a bright winding-sheet
Or the next wild tide
Sweeps through the sedge
To bear them down to the sea.
