Vintage verse – After Yesterday by A.R. Ammons

After Yesterday

After yesterday
afternoon’s blue
clouds and white rain
the mockingbird
in the backyard
untied the drops from
leaves and twigs
with a long singing.

by A.R. Ammons (1926–2001)

Northern Mockingbird at The Cornell Lab of Ornithology

    Thanks for posting this. A. R. Ammons is an excellent poet who is sadly neglected these days.
