DPF / Plath

For an almost happy poem, a wishful, wistful poem, from the 1972 HarperĀ & Row first edition of Winter Trees.

from Child / by Sylvia Plath

Your clear eye is the one absolutely beautiful thing.
I want to fill it with colors and ducks,
The zoo of the new

Whose names you meditate —
April snowdrop, Indian pipe,
