from W.S. Merwin's
Migration: New and Selected Poems

All morning with dry instruments
The field repeats the sound
Of rain
From memory
And in the wall
The dead increase their invisible honey
It is August
The flocks are beginning to form
I will take with me the emptiness of my hands
What you do not have you find everywhere

Affirm the Power of Poetry Today!

At Copper Canyon Press, we believe that poetry is vital to language and living. Contributions to the Press enable us to publish extraordinary works of poetry, discover new voices, and engage the imaginations and intellects of readers around the world. Your gift today will help us publish The Essential W.S. Merwin, a collection of the very best poems by one of our most beloved poets. The Essential W.S. Merwin will distill the poet’s lifework down to a single, approachable paperback volume to be enjoyed by dedicated fans and new readers for generations to come. In addition, your contribution supports many other established and emerging poets whose voices are needed in the world today.
