Rest

it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
When at last the rain subsides
Rising steam from August's heat
Falls cooling summer's strange device
We rest at last all things complete.

  2. On advice from an Orthodox poet friend (who is a surrealist) I've been trying to refine my style a bit. In particular, I'm trying to avoid excessively archaic devices (i.e. forsooth, thou, etc) unless properly used, and to avoid a sing-songyness. This poem only rhymes because the rhyme is natural - the phrase itself seems to beget the rhyme heat/complete.

    He said my antitheses were too predictable. Can't do much about that -- I'm not a surrealist! I can only write what I see.
