A. R. Ammons

[excerpted from A. R. Ammons's "Identity" from Collected Poems: 1951:1971, 1972]

it is
       how things work: I will tell you
                   about it

it is interesting
and because whatever is
moves in weeds
       and stars and spider webs
and known
                   is loved:
             in that love,
             each of us knowing it,
             I love you

Collected Poems 1951-1971
