Poetry Spotlight – Music – Poem of the day by Mary Oliver

The image depicts a painting titled Fire with Fire by the artist Iris Lavy. The work is an expressive abstract painting that uses a limited colour palette of muted red, ochre black and white hues which have been applied with spontaneous and immediate brush strokes that captures many layers of thoughts and emotions within the composition. The work supports the poem Music by the poet Mary Oliver.

Music by Mary Oliver

I tied together
a few slender reeds, cut

notches to breathe across and made
such music you stood
shock still and then

followed as I wandered growing
moment by moment

slant-eyes and shaggy, my feet
slamming over the rocks, growing
hard as horn, and there

you were behind me, drowning
in the music, letting

the silver clasps out of your hair,
hurrying, taking off
your clothes.

I can’t remember
where this happened but I think

it was late summer when everything
is full of fire and rounding to fruition
and whatever doesn’t,
or resists,

must lie like a field of dark water under
the pulling moon,
tossing and tossing.

In the brutal elegance of cities
I have walked down
the halls of hotels

and heard this music behind
shut doors.

Do you think the heart
is accountable? Do you think the body

any more than a branch
of the honey locust tree,

hunting water,
hunching toward the sun,

shivering, when it feels
that good, into
white blossoms?

Or do you think there is a kind
of music, a certain strand
that lights up the otherwise

blunt wilderness of the body –
a furious
and unaccountable selectivity?

Ah well, anyway, whether or not
it was late summer, or even
in our part of the world, it is all

only a dream, I did not
turn into the lithe goat god. Nor did you come running
like that.

Did you?
