The Load of Sugar-cane
By Wallace Stevens
From “Sur Ma Guzzla Gracile”

THE GOING of the glade-boat
Is like water flowing;
Like water flowing
Through the green saw-grass,
Under the rainbows;        5
Under the rainbows
That are like birds,
Turning, bedizened,
While the wind still whistles
As kildeer do,        10
When they rise
At the red turban
Of the boatman.
