Difficulty

As regular readers will know, Charles Simic is among my favorite poets. I have posted on he and his work numerous times. He has a new book of poems out called That Little Something; the following poem jumped out at me.

Sunday
Charles Simic*

A birdbath on a darkening lawn.

Death playing tag
with someone's little boy,

Trampling on flower beds.

It is going to be a difficult day.
