    risk is full: every living thing in
    siege: the demand is life, to keep life: the small
    white blacklegged egret, how beautiful, quietly stalks and spears
    the shallows, darts to shore
    to stab—
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    the walk liberating, I was released from forms,
    from the perpendiculars,
    straight lines, blocks, boxes, binds
    of thought
    into the hues, shadings, rises, flowing bends and blends
    of sight:
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    to fasten into order enlarging grasps of disorder, widening
    scope, but enjoying the freedom that
    Scope eludes my grasp, that there is no finality of vision,
    that I have perceived nothing completely,
    that tomorrow a new walk is a new walk.
    —Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    the focused beam
    folds all energy in:
    the image glares filling all space:
    the head falls and
    hangs and cannot wake itself.
    —Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    I have a life that did not become,
    that turned aside and stopped,
    astonished:
    —Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)
