DPF / Kumin

For sometimes it does seem that night dreams have lives of their own, from Up Country: Poems of New England. For this book, Kumin shared illustrator Barbara Swan with her friend, Anne Sexton.

from The Dreamer, The Dream / by Maxine Kumin

and all this they do in secret
climbing behind his back
lumbering from their dark fissure
going up like a dream going on
