The Morning Reading: "Looking at Pictures to Be Put Away"



Looking at Pictures to Be Put Away
by Gary Snyder

Who was this girl
In her white night gown
Clutching a pair of jeans

On a foggy redwood deck.
She looks up at me tender,
Calm, surprised,

What will we remember
Bodies thick with food and lovers
After twenty years.

Getting old is not for chickens.
