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.
