                                                                        BLACK WATER,
An Adaptation of a Theme from a German Movie*

Water in the forest, terrible black water,
A pond over rot and dead leaves, 
You lie silent, quiet, you, you stay and are still,
Unmoving, yet the storm rages around the wood.
In the groves pines lean; 
The nets of spiders are torn apart, 
And then the splintering begins.

You in the hollow, you, you rest, black water.
Branches fall, leaves scatter,
Bark peals from trees and flies in every direction at once.
All woodland shelter vanishes.

Yet nothing reaches you, down there, black water.

*I first heard the expression of this phrase in Rainer Werner Fassbinder,  “Berlin Alexanderplatz.”  But I have embellished his original sentiment.
