Sunday Afternoon by Christopher Woods

"Sunday Afternoon"
Christopher Woods

Time back, country parts gave names to ways we act:
Power, the sun. Moon, mystery. Stars, arrays of hope.
Clouds, doubt. Mist, evasion. Rain, relief
For thirst in throats, and the land's need to grow.
Patrick Henry, "Metaphorisms"
