Daily Poem – Corsons Inlet

August 17, 2006

Corsons Inlet

by A. R. Ammons

I went for a walk over the dunes again this morning
to the sea,
then turned right along
   the surf
                        rounded a naked headland
                        and returned

   along the inlet shore:

it was muggy sunny, the wind from the sea steady and high,
crisp in the running sand,
       some breakthroughs of sun
   but after a bit

continuous overcast:

the walk liberating, I was released from forms,
from the perpendiculars,
       straight lines, blocks, boxes, binds
of thought
into the hues, shadings, rises, flowing bends and blends
