Evening Quandary
By Marsden Hartley
 
THERE is water flowing
          From the padre’s garden.
 
There is water flowing
          Under the solid gate.
 
There is water flowing        5
          From the keyhole.
 
There is water flowing,
          Wat —er,
 
Drip, drip, drip, drip,
          From the padre’s garden.        10
 
It is not raining.
          The stars are all laughing.
 
There is water flowing,
          From the padre’s garden.
 
Ten o’clock in the evening,        15
          From the keyhole.
Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
 
          If it had rained today,
I would say it is the patter of sky feet
          In the padre’s garden.        20
 
There is water flowing,
          From the padre’s garden—
          Everywhere.
