Buffalo Evening by Robert Creeley

Steady, the evening fades
up the street into sunset
over the lake. Winter sits

quiet here, snow piled
by the road, the walks stamped
down or shoveled. The kids

in the time before dinner are
playing, sliding on the old ice.
The dogs are out, walking. 

And it’s soon inside again,
with the light gone.
Time to eat, to think of it all.

Mortals & Immortals is available in the Burchfield Penney Museum Store, online or by calling 716-878-3595.
