Poems rescue shadows from real things

This morning we read  how Newton’s apple falls to dust, the earth dust of generations. The way words fall, poems are made .

Poems rescue shadows from real things . Newtons dad gave him a commonplace book . Our own commonplaces are made up of  words to rescue shadows from real things.

Poems are not mere to know
But see down beyond gravity
Through common dust piles.

Apples are not for polishing
Being wonders of earth dust,
Here and why they fall to  it.
