THE STORY / An enormous island of dust in the south salt air Rises like a shadowy, veined mountain Above the white-violet city shoals, And roofs slant up from the undergloom of dawn. Be still: through watery panes and arcing branches, The dark gold light of catalpa strews our street . . . No one is about, and the mill is yet unlit, And Rose Creek runs too low to hear: hold still. Now morning stars unsheathe in their cumulus gate . . . At this hour, in the story, Aeneas' sword Flashed quick as a thought through the great looping hawsers, And his swanlike ships slid free of that harbor sand . . . Then breath of the oarsmen
