Poem – EASE (By John Zedolik)

EASE – By John Zedolik


Snow on the Moore. But the

Reclining Figure, 1957, doesn’t

care. After all it is only a mantle


upon bronze, lounging there for

halfway to a century and more, and

has certainly experienced worse


in those years of wavering weather

and witnesses such as me who envy

the unconcern that brings fortitude


in each season, with the same dangers

as the ones before and to come, while

displaying ever grace of polished metal
