Two Poems, by Luke Bradford

  

dragonflies
 

Ireland fogs.
Foreign lads
signaled for
fire and logs.

Fog in alders,
a fiord’s glen.
A golden firs
ring of dales.
 
Dragonflies,
soaring, fled
a finer golds
island forge:

Fiord
angels,
rain-elf gods,
refolding as
gears infold.

  


bees

 

bugs that buzz; tiny, 

busy nuns that hide 

that Lady deep amid 

some waxy maze; that


wing over your park, 

your farm, your plot, 

your lawn; that call 

upon each iris, lily,

posy, vine, plum tree, 

palm tree, pear tree, 

lime; that draw from 

each that rosy wine;

that come home, legs 

dyed with pale gold 

dust, then buzz, dozy, 

into some cozy room
