  1. Beyond the Red River
  2. BY THOMAS MCGRATH
  3.  
  4. The birds have flown their summer skies to the south,
  5. And the flower-money is drying in the banks of bent grass
  6. Which the bumble bee has abandoned. We wait for a winter lion,
  7. Body of ice-crystals and sombrero of dead leaves.
  8.  
  9. A month ago, from the salt engines of the sea,
  10. A machinery of early storms rolled toward the holiday houses
  11. Where summer still dozed in the pool-side chairs, sipping
  12. An aging whiskey of distances and departures.
  13.  
  14. Now the long freight of autumn goes smoking out of the land.
  15. My possibles are all packed up, but still I do not leave.
  16. I am happy enough here, where Dakota drifts wild in the universe,
  17. Where the prairie is starting to shake in the surf of the winter dark.
