Time of Confidence

Time of Confidence

The magnolias only seem to be holding
up the sky, but perhaps it has to do
too with a certain feeling of the sky
requiring to be held up against the
gravity of some deep discouragement,
some sense of levity lost, a longing for
the recovery of a certain time—in the
zeitgeist sense—nothing you will see
on a calendar or track with a watch,
but a time of innocence, as some bards
sing it, a time of confidence.
