SIMON PATTON
 
The Whole Joy
 
Every swimmer
owns that terror
she died of.
 
Yet still this summer
we bait the water
with her fears.
 
Sun, sand, sea:
how these three
symbol the mind’s joy …
 
What shadows them –
decease, devastation –
revolts it.
 
Like earth, like air,
no ocean bears
any enduring stain –
 
we mind her pain,
scarified, so that we can learn
the whole joy.
