Let The Day Go

Let The Day Go - by Grace Paley

     who needs it
I had another day in mind
something like this one
     sunny green the earth
just right having suffered
the assault of what is called
torrential rain the pepper
the basil sitting upright
in their little boxes waiting
I suppose for me also the
cosmos the zinnias nearly
blooming a year too late
forget it let the day go
the sweet green day let it
take care of itself
