I thought I knew

         

          My birds arrive from tropics and glaciers I can't imagine.

My river sparkles into a distance I've never seen.

Some days the volcano trembles and all I can do is wonder.

When my Beloved finds wild animals in me should I be alarmed or merely startled?

I thought I understood, looked in the mirror enough to recognize me,

but now you have re-created me entirely and I must start over. Again.
