Looking for Gold by William Stafford
A flavor like wild honey begins
when you cross the river. On a sandbar
sunlight stretches out its limbs, or is it
a sycamore, so brazen, so clean and bold?
You forget about gold. You stare and a flavor
is rising all the time from the trees.
Back from the river, over by a thick
forest, you feel the tide of wild honey
flooding your plans, flooding the hours
til they waver forward looking back.
They can't return: that river divides more than
two sides of your life. the only way
is farther, breathing that country, becoming
wise in it's flavor, a native of the sun.
