yesterday sighs away

Standard

Climbing Along the River
William Stafford

Willows never forget how it feels
to be young.

Do you remember where you come from?
Gravel remembers.

Even the upper end of the river
believes in the ocean.

Exactly at midnight
yesterday sighs away.

What I believe is,
all animals have one soul.

Over the land they love
they crisscross forever.
